Despite looking like a steam traction engine this Townsend Oil Tractor is powered by a twin cylinder oil engine.
Quote “A Townsend 30-60 Oil Tractor at Rollag, Minnesota, in 2006. The 2-cylinder, horizontal engine can be seen on top of the large steam boiler-like round radiator. ” “Townsend designed his new tractor with what he called a “boiler frame.” Looking for all the world like a steam traction engine, the large round “boiler” was actually the tractor’s frame, as well as the radiator containing the cooling water for the engine. Engine exhaust was piped through the radiator to exit through the “smokestack” at the front. The exhaust created a draft that drew air through “flues” in the “boiler,” thus cooling the water.”

Quote——“Few cars can claim to have taken part in the mythical 24 Hours of Le Mans, perhaps the most prestigious and romantic of all the ‘grandes epreuves’ in motorsport history. Fewer still can claim to have achieved a victory, but this plucky little British car, a supercharged MG, did just that, taking home class honours in the 1933 running of the event and coming home, extraordinarily for a 750cc entrant, 6th overall behind a trio of Alfa Romeo 8C 2300s (the first co-driven by Tazio Nuvolari), a larger-engined Riley and an Aston Martin. It was MG’s first ever and second highest finish at Le Mans and ‘our’ car averaged 99km/hour in the hands of JL Ford and Maurice Baumer”

A Sports Model open top truck. Judging by the ground clearance American roads must be billiard table smooth and swept several times a day. Round Royston Vasey it would beach before it got an 10 feet. Where are it’s exhaust stacks?? I didn’t think US trucks could emit at ground level. See Below
