Looks like a key fob and the letters "AR" could be the owners initials.

Did cars have keys in 1906?

And I agree; looks like initials on the back, and nothing to do with a car manufacturer's logo or product name, branding, etc...

I hate to put it this way, but there really isn't alot of detail in the drawing to distinguish it from one make or another. Most likely it was drawn as a " generic" car, or a "simple" version of someones car.
As ffuries stated, most likely initials of the owner.
Cars of that era did not need keys yet. Half of the population had not even seen a car in person, let alone know how to carjack it

Yep. There were thousands of car makers in the early 1900's.
