Henry Motor Car Co. (1910-1912)
Muskegon, Michigan

Size: 85mm wide 35mm high    MM: Unknown

The Henry was introduced in 1910 as a 35 hp four-cylinder touring car but the Henry line grew by 1911 into a range of nine four-cylinder models in varying horsepower and body styles, including the rakish Henry "Roadstar".

There were problems within the company and David W Henry, the designer of the Henry car, left in 1911 and moved to Iowa to design the Colby (see Colby). But the main problem with the Henry was a shortage of working capital and by early spring of 1912, after producing about 600 cars, the company was in receivership.


It is possible that the very first Henry 35 cars appearing in 1910 did not carry a radiator emblem but displayed the "Henry" name on a small brass maker's nameplate, see example shown below. This Henry nameplate is extremely rare.
