The 1912 Sampson 35 shown above was a five passenger Touring Car that was equipped with a water cooled four cylinder engine that developed 30-35 horsepower. The Sampson four cylinder was powerful, strong, simple, accessible and silent. It embodies both the value of the runabout and a large touring car. The Sampson had four vertical water jacketed cylinders cast in bloc. The water jackets on these cylinders are cast in one piece. Also the intake and exhaust manifold.

There are two essential features about the 1912 Sampson transmission. One is its strength and the other is quietness. Particular attention in the Sampson Thirty-five was given to the size of the gears and the quality of metal. The change speed gears are all case hardened and have ample width of face. All gear noises are practically eliminated. The type of transmission is, of course, the selective sliding gear, three forward speeds and reverse. All shifts are made by one lever. From four to fifty-five miles an hour may be attained on third speed. Final drive was by shaft and full floating rear axle.
