An under-the-hood look at an experimental tractor, developed by Allis-Chalmers Research laboratories in 1959, bares the banks of fuel cells which provided the electricity to power this research vehicle. The engineless tractor was presented to the Smithsonian Institution in 1960, where it is now on permanent display.
