Yes, you can put a power booster and master on it as long as its correct for your year of car. Make sure that the booster, comes with the proper mounting brackets. You will also have to install a proportioning valve on your car.

Don't forget your power brake pushrod is longer than your manual one. You'll need that too.
You shouldn't have to install a proportioning valve, the car should already have one. '68s had dual masters from the factory, so no T block.
