This is the missing massive Snow Cruiser in Antarctica?

Satellite images from 1984, which we have received from third parties, show a massive vehicle in the snow of Antarctica. Could it be the infamous snow cruiser? The 1984 images have since been censored by Google Earth.

The Antarctic Snow Cruiser with a length of 17 meters and a heigh, wheels extended of 4.9 meters was a vehicle designed from 1937 to 1939 intended to facilitate transport in Antarctica during the United States Antarctic Service Expedition (1939–41). The Snow Cruiser also known as “The Penguin, arrived at Little America in the Bay of Whales, Antarctica in early January 1940.

The massive Snow Cruiser generally failed to operate as hoped under the difficult conditions, and was eventually abandoned in Antarctica.

During Operation Highjump in late 1946, an expedition team found the vehicle and discovered it needed only air in the tires and some servicing to make it operational.

In 1958, an international expedition uncovered the snow cruiser using a bulldozer. It was covered by several feet of snow but a long bamboo pole marked its position.

They were able to excavate to the bottom of the wheels and accurately measure the amount of snowfall since it was abandoned. Inside, the vehicle was exactly as the crew had left it, with papers, magazines, and cigarettes scattered all around. It later disappeared again due to shifting ice conditions.

In terms of dimensions and design, the massive vehicle shown on the 1984 images corresponds to the missing snow cruiser, so, could it be the cruiser?
