I have a 19641/2 mustang with this tag.

Answer by Vicky
The FE0082 number is a key code.
Given that “code” a locksmith or key-maker could make a key for your vehicle.
As I recall, the tags used to say “Record and detach”
The reason for that would be so that anybody that saw the code could not go out and make keys to your vehicle. So Owners are “warned” to record the code somewhere, in case you need it… but detach the tag from your keyring so that others couldn’t see and copy it.

I hope this helps.
