Apparently not very many: No listings in my 24 piston catalog, the 50 to teens fan belt catalog or the similar years bearing catalog. Power Wagon's list of mfr's in Jan 20 issue doesn't list them (lists GMC but no GM or Samson), and the Dec 20 spec pages doesn't list any. Assumng it's the GM Samson it must be another very rare bird indeed. Have you tried GM, to see if they have a historical section?? Also ping Kevin above with the Victor gasket catalogs to see if any listed in his catalogs. Good luck.

BC: The Pacific Northwest Truck Museum Has Three Sampsons in our collection. 1 is a 3/4 ton 1is a 1 ton and the other one is 1 1/4 all around 1920 I don't think we have muck history on any of them. I have photos of the 3/4 ton the 1 ton and I think the 1 1/4 see attached.
