A 1920 Samson sugar cane tractor, just 42' wide, built by General Motors. 'As far as my research revealed, it's the only cane tractor built by GM, and possibly the first built by anyone,' says Archie Magsig, 8833 U.S. 27, DeWitt, Michigan 48820. Archie bought it off a plantation near Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the original owner. It's completely restored and runs great.
