With respect to the Mopar R&P which Tom has identified, although it is a center take-off type, it is also a front-steer type, i.e., the steering arms at the uprights (struts, knuckles,etc.) are forward of the wheel spindle. To make a right turn, the rack also travels to the right. Given the configuration of the W114/115 crossmember, it is difficult to get the steering shaft in place to use a front-steer R&P.

A common rear-steer, center take-off R&P can be sourced from GM J-platform cars, and forms the basis for a number of after-market kits, many of them directed at early Mustangs. J-bodies include: Buick Skyhawk, Cadillac Cimarron, Chevy Cavalier, Oldsmobile Firenza, Pontiac 2000/Sunbird/Sunfire.
