The fuel cell tractor I believe is still on display in Hutchinson, Minnesota (where the upper midwest club orange spectacular is held every summer) at a museum there. Allis-Chalmers sold the technology they developed in fuel cells and it was then used to power NASA spacecraft...fuel cells are ideal power sources in space. I don't believe that the fuel cell tractor was ever intended for farm use but was just built to demonstrate the feasability of fuel cells as a power source. As for the large equipment that some of the other posts talk about, in the early 1980's, Allis-Chalmers built some 12 cylinder engines that were used to power cargo ships. They weighed 1100 tons, the crankshaft was 80 feet long, and they produced 43,000 horsepower. (Those are not typos.)

I don't know if they have a 2,200,000 weight class for antique tractor pulls or not!
Seriously though, you can see pictures of those engines either in Charles Wendell's book "The Allis-Chalmers Story" or Norm Swinford's "Allis-Chalmers Farm Equipment".
