Hi Russell.  There was one company that cast a Streamline
Henderson Four, it was called Vindex.  They mostly made cast
iron farm implement toys.  

They painted the Hendersons green with accents in a silver
or gold color, can't remember.  They had a decal on the gas
tanks.  I've seen two in person (one with a sidecar) and one
on eBay.  I've also seen a rider offered on eBay as a Vindex
casting.

There's a current company named Thomas Toys that reproduces
spare parts for Hubleys and other cast iron toys.  Haven't
seen the Henderson toy in their catalog.

I don't know how you'd go about reproducing the original
Vindex.  Interesting project though.  Jeff.

  I'm thinking about making some toys similar to the size of
he V-Twins toys commonly seen.  These would have the four
cylinder engine and generally appear to be a Henderson in
all other respects because it would be from a new pattern. 
Are these being made or have they been and of so what is the
ost?  Does anyone have an interest in purchasing something
like this?    Thanks, russell.
