Not familiar with that style. I would search eBay under the names of some of 
the oil companies of the time. I have a window sticker from Duckhams that is in 
paper. The garage owner would write whe the last oil change was done and when 
to do again.

Sorry guys, English is not my first language.

What I mean is a small tag, probably about 40 x 80 mm (1.5 inch by 3 
inches) or so with e.g. a 6 mm (1/4 in.) hole in them,
dangling from e.g. the direction indicator stalk or the choke control knob 
of your car using a small piece of rope,
the rope usually being white, red or green.

This is a preprinted card, issued by an oil company, usually rubber stamped 
with name and address of the
car dealer who puts it in your car after a lube job.

Then, a ball point is used to record e.g. (1) date of last oil 
change, (2) mileage of last oil change, (3) (mileage) when next oil 
change is due, (4) type of oil to be used.
