Samson trucks were first built in Flint, ich., n 1920 after General Motors Corp. bought out Samson Tractor Works. The M-15 model sold for $655 and the M-25 for $1,095. Both trucks were built for farm use, itted with extension rims with plain cleats in front and shallow cleats in the rear for ease of driving over plowed fields. Samson truck production was halted in 1923. The City of Janesville (Wis.) Street Department continued use of its fleet of Samsons until the late 1940s.

Samson built tractors for a number of years, ut trucks were only produced for a short time under GM ownership, rom 1920 to 1923. GMbought the company in 1918 to have a tractor to compete with Ford’s Fordsom tractors. GM shut down Samson in 1923when that failed. Some of these trucks were still being used in the 1940s.
