Depending on what it originally came in, many late 60s 429/460 engines have a power steering pump built onto the crankshaft and timing case...
It can be removed and replaced with useful parts, but that's just more parts you have to source.
They were all originally built for leaded 93 octane gas, so valve seats aren't hardened, and pinging is almost certain. You can dial back the timing and de-tune, but...again, right answer is a rebuild with appropriate parts for today's fuel.
 
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.

Yep^^, they also use a different style water pump and pulley's with different "offset" dimensions as compared to '70 and up 429/460's.

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.
