If you were to find a later Buick-powered V6 Jeep with power steering, that's what you would want (like a Jeepster or Commando, etc). Otherwise, PS systems from Buick passenger casrs that used the 225 (prior to Jeep) or 231 will fit your motor, so you can hit the junkyards for a later-70's to mid-80's Buick and probably score a bunch of useful stuff, such as a HEI distributor as well.
Below is a picture of a 225 bolted into a 1966 CJ-5 chassis, but that motor is actually from a 1964 Buick passenger car (same engine that became an option for CJ's in 1966 anyway). That's representative of what you are looking for if you find yourself dealing with the older stuff.
