Default How Many Samson Tractors and Trucks left?

I am very interested in knowing how many Samson products are still around trucks, tractors, and any tractors and trucks that were made before the GM take over of both. Were any built in Canada of both and are there a lot in Canada now mainly Ontario. I know of one not far from me but have not seen any others and I have not seen any trucks. Anybody out there know?. John

The Rock County Historical Society in Janesville WI has a model M and truck, Both I believe were built after GM became owner of the company. The truck and tractor were on loan to our club for a while. One of them sat in the GM Janesville Assy plant until GM closed it a few years ago.

We have an M, 30x and model D Iron Horse. I recently got the correct engine for the Iron Horse but am trying to find out what the motor mounts and drive coupling look like if anyone has photos it would be greatly appreciated. Joe P

We have an Iron Horse that we drive around, here on the grounds. I will take a look and see if I can get you some photos.

Photo Re: How many Samson tractors and trucks left?

I saw this one in 2010 out in Yuma Arizona. There were about 6 really old tractors sitting close to the road. So I stopped and took some pictures. No one came out of the house so I wasn't able to ask any questions about the tractors. It looks like the Arizona climate has been pretty kind to these tractors.

There was a Model M outside of Cookstown, Ontario that sold a few years back. Shelly Hahn bought it and then it was sold again at his big sale. I'm not sure where it is now, I don't believe it left the province?

There is a website for Samson M's. I'm sure Ernie can enlighten you on those survival numbers. There are, no doubt, more out there than you may think.
