The American Safety Equipment Corporation was incorporated in New York in 1959. The company produced a line of safety-related accessories for automobiles including seat belts and helmets.
The company also produced a line of chrome "dress up" accessories like air cleaners, wire looms, oil breathers and chromed pipe joints.
To promote their products, the company came up with a product line name - IMpact. They also hired a blonde woman to promote the wares in a series of cute ads. Her name was Cookie. For 1969 Cookie appeared in various ads hyping products for the company. They weren't big budget ads - half page black and white ads in the back pages of Hot Rod magazine.
As the underprint on this piece indicates - the second image presented above - the company later branched out into other methods of transportation, leisure craft, consumer products as well as environmental applications.
