    Posted: August-03-2023 at 1:18pm
Hi everyone, I am in the process of putting back to original 72 SN. It had the tall pylon but someone swapped it out unfortunately for an aluminum POS. My buddy makes pylons for Bennington another friend had a tall pylon which he let me borrow to make measurements. Needless to say I am going to have the pylon replicated, but I am in need of the ring and finger. I’m willing to pay and ship. I live in Indiana. Does anyone have one lying around?

Seems bizarre someone would pick this little forum to try and scam the current 22 members
Do they come over from fakebook

There is a group of CC guys in Three Rivers Michigan that might be able to help. You can search the group on the Facebook.

Well that makes it official, there literally isn't ANYTHING that can't be bought on Amazon.

I'm seriously amazed there are new ring and fingers being sold.

That's because in teeny tiny easy to miss letters under the picture, (looks like part of the picture} he says "Sorry it was Ebay"

Here's a link


it's a NOS ring and finger from something that will take some work to adapt it to the top of a CC pylon, so all the CC purists will cringe......me, I'd say good find DenDen, post a picture when it's done Wink

There'll be some work involved.

roll number generator

This is what I’m starting with. I will post it when I’m done along with the pictures of the entire boat.

At least we can agree on the cringe part. Not sure why anyone would go out of their way to put an incorrect ring and finger on the pylon- from a functional perspective, a ball topper is a bit easier to live with and fairly inexpensive to make (not sure if they’re still being sold?). Anyone who would care about the originality would likely spot that as an imposter anyways. It gets a number of features wrong relative to the original.

This is a picture of an original, as far as I know. I think the one I make will look exactly like this, with the exception of being taller. That in itself will give it away as an imposter.
Being taller will help to clear anyone sitting in the backseat while innertubing or whatever.
This boat will not be original anyway. We plan on updating the stripes to a 77 style (less the number ) It will probably not sound or run like a 75, 350 either.
This is all just for the fun of it.
