 Above is a repeat of an early view of the Cardinal ZK-DAK with Cessna 150G ZK-DAL (c/n 15066321) taken at Hamilton.
This airframe followed a similar path to the Cardinal ZK-DAK.
 It was initially allocated the US registration of N8421J and allocated the VH-KPT marks - but these Australian letters were not taken up and it came onto the NZ aircraft register as ZK-DAL on 19-12-1969 with James Aviation Ltd at Hamilton.
This also got an engine upgrade, from 100 to 150hp, with the conversion being done by ANZ. It first flew here on 06-04-1970.
It was officially listed to the Aorangi Aero Club at Taihape on 28-07-1970.
Below - seen at Taihape.
It was passed to Dalcom Aviation Training Ltd at Wanganui from 24-07-1973.
It is seen below at Wanganui in November of 1973. Thanks again to Allan Wooller.

 In August of 1976 it was listed with W M Charles and R L Rimmer of Wellington and then to the Waipukurau Gliding Club from 03-11-1978. 
Keith Cammock of Dannevirke took it over from 30-06-2009 and below we see her at Waipukurau on 17-03-2010.
