Kim bought me this for my collection of AC memorabilia (a birthday present). Does anyone recall what these were produced for. It's a fob for a keychain (the keychain was added on at some point since it's not the original). It appears to be a D17D or D19D and was cast in Italy. I thought possibly they were made for Europe when they were expanding sales over there, but why would it be in English. I can't imagine why some 3rd party in Italy would produce something that would not have a large market, it seemed it might be something AC had made up and dealers gave out. Any thoughts?

Thanks to you all.
It would be interesting to know what year they used that slogan.
I was just looking at it with readers and a magnifying glass. It's surprisingly detailed having the bolts on the belt pulley cover. It looks like it was based on a year that had the protective cover over the power director button, it's slightly wider at the top, yet it definitely has a diagonal cross hatching for the grill (1960 or earlier?). It doesn't seem to have power adjust wheels, but I suppose the detail for that would have been too difficult.
That's why I was wondering the year for the slogan, that might date it. I hadn't seen that slogan myself though it sounds like a double meaning they might pick as they were trying to expand globally.

I can't help, other than that's an early D17 gas. Insignia is correct for the time also.
