Check out the Leon Rubay auto parts stand, 1906 New York Auto Show...........he went bankrupt, moved to Paris, went broke again, then moved to Cleveland and became successful.  
 

Until his entry into the complete automobile manufacturing business with his 1923 Leon Rubay, a 124.8 c.in. OHV four cylinder, 118" wheelbase, $5,100-$5,300.   Do any Leon Rubay cars still exist?

Ed, Thanks for taking the time for posting all of these! The body on the roadster with the flapper on the running board may be by Schutte of Lancaster, Pa. I have sales literature issued by them I will have to get out and look at. Schutte did a similar body on an Oldsmobile chassis so that may be what I recall, have to check.  The flapper is a very nice accessory, does not show up in the factory accessory catalog but so very nice none the less.  🤩  Hummm I could accommodate a flapper for my Packard touring car ....I am single , and that car has a lot of sheet metal to polish.

If one has survived I have never seen or heard of it.
