Ford "SPOT CHECK" holder
#1
While I was putting my new tacho in today I thought I'd photograph the little clear "spot check" holder located on the drivers side dash cover panel. Is this on every Mustang?? Mine still contains it's first service tag which I think is a pretty cool little historical item.

I don't recall seeing one either.

Perhaps Don (or one of the other Members who have seen a lot of our cars) will chime in on this. It seems to be a pretty rare thing to meSmile.

I would imagaine that that would have been a local Ford dealer item from back in the day to help remind customers of their next service need and date.

It similar to the ones the gas stations would stick on the inside of your door jamb when they did a lube and service.

That is so cool - I never seen one before. I suspect it was put on by the dealer's Service Department.

Those were used for maintenance. Much like the lube sticker that goes on the inside of your windshield. Your car was service at a Ford dealer way back and it was most likely installed then.

Thanks for the response guys...I guess it makes sense that the tag holder was put there during it's first service. It's nice to know that the car got new oil and oil filter at 1142 miles, just hope that the previous owner/s had changed it a few times since. Undecided
