Though I haven't been there in years I believe the Hays truck museum in Woodland CA has or had a Samson truck at one time.

Fresh Trash!!! All I need now is a CB and a monkey, we will be East bound and down! Without Kevin R's help this one could have easily eluded my rust-stained grasp.

My father-in-law in NW Illinois has a pair of Model M's. One is a 1919 and the other is a 1920. We picked them up from an old farmer in eastern Iowa last year.

Those are some very interesting tractors. I have never seen a governor setup like that on a Samson, I am thinking it is an add on but it is an interesting add on. Also never seen the open rear wheel design like one of your tractors has. I too own a Samson model M. There is a registry being kept on them and there were about 120 tractors on the list that are known to exist yet but I would guess that there are still a few out in hiding.
