Introduced in 1948, The Cessna 170 was a stretched Model 140 to make room for four.  Then, in 1956, Cessna changed the 170 to a tricycle landing gear configuration re-designating the aircraft the 172.  A deluxe version was named the Skyhawk.

By the time production of the 172 ceased in the mid 1980s over 30,000 of the series had been built making it the most widely produced light aircraft in history.
