That would appear to be an "easy" and sensible solution... plenty of
parts cars out there.

When I bought my 82 coupe the power steering was disabled, and overall
it was not a big deal - but tight manouvering was almost impossible.
Like getting in and out of driveways on one lane roads. So I replaced
the pump and the little W-tube that was shot. And this car is lighter
and shorter than yours.
Suppose it depends on your driving situations.
