According to this, it's probably the NASA GA(W)-2:

(Scroll down to "Stoddard-Hamilton.")

However, this page suggests that at least some Glasairs
used the LS(1)-0413

As for finding the zero-lift alpha, there are probably Web
applets out there that can do that for you. I used to use the one at
Martin Hepperle's Web site:

The NASA GA(W)-2 was later renamed the NASA LS(1)-0413.
