Um I do believe that the first power steering was used in the 50's. I believe it was on a Chrysler Imperial under the name of Hydraguide. Not sure of the exact year though. Most vehicals either had it or had an option for it in the mid to late 60's.

Well it would all depend on the type of vehicle. Some companys came out with it before others did.
