Scrapped at Moorabbin in 1961 four years after being withdrawn from use. Despite what is stated in multiple places online, this is not the aircraft that was converted into CA-28 Ceres VH-SSF. That was converted from CA-16 A20-129 purchased by CAC in 1958 as a direct disposal from the government. Both aircraft existed at the same time, the Ceres initially registered as VH-CEO in January 1961. Source: Geoff Goodall.

The first production FU-24, first flown in the US rather than New Zealand. Delivered with an open cockpit that had been replaced by September 1956. ZK-BDS was rebuilt and upgraded several times. At the time it was destroyed in a crash at Matawai on September 20, 2003 (yes, 49 years of ag work) it was an FU-24-950M with almost twice the power it had in 1954.
