Exclamation Centuri PNC-74 "in the wild?"

I was poking around in some printouts of Centuri plans from JimZ when I came across this blow-molded PNC-74 "sighting" in the second (non-"K" version) of the Excalibur:

It's in the exploded view on the 4th page, listed as "c".

To my eye, the 1972 catalog model appears to have a PNC-74 nose cone (as, apparently, does its neighbor, the Bandito):

...*although* the kitcard illustration looks like it uses a PNC-76.
(I have the PDF file, but can't figure out where I found it. I don't think it's the version on YORP. )

Analytical *and* obsessed,
