Marked as "Skyhawk". The first version of one of the most wonderful Cessna creations all over the world. It might be from mid 50s, when Cessna started its production. You can denote its age by looking at the horn next to the nose, and the elliptical cockpit shape. For his age, it doesn't count with rear windows. Those GPS look quite modern!

Good picture, but actually this is not the first 172 version. It's a 172A from 1960 with the swept-back tail fin. The 1950s versions (which are just plain "172") have a straight vertical tail fin. By the way, that "horn" is actually a venturi tube which provides vacuum to drive the instruments; early 172 models didn't have a vacuum pump.
