International 11/16/2012 @ 8:19am International also had a turbine tractor. It used to be at the Smithsonian in Wash D.C. Not sure if it's still there.

I saw this tractor..... 10/04/2012 @ 11:56am ...at the University of Nebraska Tractor Day, probably in 1958. It was designed to test their Select-o-speed transmission or similar transmission under high power conditions. I sat next to a executive from Ford at the FFA convention in Kansas City. He explained Ford's reason for building it. At roughly that same time International had a hydrostat tractor, Allis had a fuel cell tractor. I don't remember what JD had. Not long after that they came out with their 4 and 6 cylinder models, then later a power shift which was similar to produciton models that they sold for many years. It was a time when advances in farm power were happening fast....Soyroy
