I've always wondered what was the thinking behind those rear wheel spokes, a very unique design!

Thanks Paul for saving this tractor. Good luck on finding and making the parts you may need.
To carry on with the original question of how many are left...I started keeping track of Model M's in 1995. Another guy and I were working together and comparing notes. When we reached about 10 he said that must be all that survived. Well I'm more of an optimist, I said if there are 10 there has to be 10 more. I've tried keeping the attitude that whatever I'm at for a total there is still another. AND Paul just proved that to be true. With the help of a lot of people I know of well over 100 Model M's.

If anyone has any original pictures of actual Model M's that you would want to share, please go to samsonmodelm.com and let me know.

Trucks, I never kept record but with what I've run across info on, and this thread, I think you could easily come up with over 2 dozen. Remember I'm not a truck collector so there might easily be double that?????

I got the 1919 Samson M running over Memorial Day weekend. The magneto on the 1920 wasn't working, so it will have to wait for another day:

For those of you with Model M's, what carburetor do you have? Both of the tractors I have been working on have Kingston Model L's. I was curious if these were original or a modification (especially since both tractors have pickering flyball governors installed).

We make the fenders for the M. We have new fenders listed in the classifieds from month to month. Makes a nice finishing touch to a rare and hard to find tractor. Better to have them saved than scraped.

I haven't kept tract of the number of trucks I've came in contact in the last 20+ years, and my data is 100% up-to-date on the Model M, but I know of over 100 Model M's. David Parfitt of Steel Wheels has a public list of serial numbers people have given him. If you want some general info on the Model M, you can view my website; http//:samsonmodelm.com

Yes the Model L Kingston is the original carb.

How many Model M's do you have?

My father-in-law has two that are older restorations (1919 and 1920). I posted a youtube video further up in the thread of me driving the 1919 around the barnyard.

Hey Jim, I was wondering if you still have access to the Samson ironhorse I have a unique interest in it. My backstory is my wifeís grandfather developed the roller chain that was used on Samson tractors. He owned the Spaulding Chain Company we have lost finding where he ended up after he left Chicago Il. The chain up close has a raven stamped on the links so Iím trying to help her locate a piece of chain or at least an up close picture. I know this is an unusual request but itís been a 15 or more year search for any info trying to locate him. So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Troy Keenan Downsville La.
