If you Wanna try something, they sell electric vacuum pumps which would be the more expensive part or get a vacuum canister and hope it can store enough at idle and driving rpm to use power brakes.

You could try to find a vacuum pump from a diesel pickup, dodge used them with a reservoir for cruise set and then ford had an assembly for the auto hubs. I don't know for sure just what they pulled for vacuum. Just something I came across at work. From what I remember the ford ones were pretty compact.
