Default Ford Key Fob - Postage Guaranteed

I found this at my local honey hole. I couldn't find any information on the web, so before I call Ford Motorcorp for info, I was wondering if anyone here has any information on this key fob. The basics are understood (as stated on the fob), but I'm wondering about its age (1970s?), what Fords this might have come with (all?), and which dealers used them (all?).

Thanks for any info!


NOTE: Sorry about the vertical pics. They are horizontal on my computer, but ended up vertical on the submission to the forum.

Lathrup Village is just north of Detroit.
This my have come from a ford dealership in that town.
I have a few of similar tags and always thought they were from the 50-60's.
Very cool find

Maybe a little older than 1970s? But zip code started in 1963 so can't be earlier than that.

Good info! So no earlier than that, but probably only a little later. Thanks!

Even if the program was still going, I think it would be mailed to the original owner's address, that must be what the serial number was linked to.
