Talk to Chad (LBR) he makes strings and answered all of my questions. I dont know if he can help you with the bow, but he can help you with the string.

The Green Fox was in the 1969 Bear catalog. Fox bows were discontinued in 1972. Or, at least, the line was renamed in '72(Brown Bear, Red Bear, etc) because Bear kept making solid glass bows long after that. It'll take a standard 56" AMO dacron string.
