My C3 does have the possibility to use (at least to my knowledge) three interchangeable lenses. I don't think though that plastic was used for the body, GMA, according to what I have read they used bakelite and, from what I know -but I'm from the Netherlands, so just for what it's worth- the brick has been used by generations of Americans. That's probably why you can get your hands so easily on an old working C3.
I would agree with you using the Brick with this just on wide Sandmar lens, GMA, but, just picture this: if the lens is stuck how'd you ever use the focussing gear?

Kind regards and thanks,
