    This one had me stumped for quite some time. Apologies for the delay in response, but thankfully I figured it out:

    It’s not clear to me whether the OP just wants an information manul or needs an AFM for his airplane.  The latter can only be acquired from Cessna itself and will be specific to his airplane’s serial number.  However, you can get an information manual here:

    🙁 No need to be offended by a little wise crack. Sorry if I hurt someones feelings.
    On a serious note, this aircraft was produced (1973-76) prior to, and exempt from, the aircraft specific AFM regulation requirement (1979). So I suspect there won’t be an AFM that Cessna made for that specific aircraft. Of course I’m not sure on that, anyone know if they would make a tail # specific manual when it isn’t required for the manufacturer to do so?
    I know our cherokee 140s, produced before 1979, have “aircraft specific manuals.” I quote aircraft specific because they were not per the regulation or supplied by piper, they are simply a poh with an airplane specific equipment list and W&B. Our mechanics put them together and wrote the aircraft tail number inside the poh.

    Thanks Brian and Nathan for the info. However any idea where I can find the email address for Cessna. I will then contact them and see if it  is necessary to obtain the POH applicable to the aircraft serial number or if it  is not required and I only need a poh covering that specific model
    Again thank you both

    Keep in mind that a POH or AFM is required by many aircraft type certificates or equipment lists, so the fact the regulation that Brian mentioned doesn’t explicitly require it is moot. A student of mine also has a 172M and acquired a serialized POH from Cessna.
    I don’t know the approriate place to call, but you might start here:
