In 1958 an International Geophysical Year team located the cruiser by digging with a bulldozer where a bamboo pole protruded atop many feet of snow. Reaching the spot where its wheels rested in the snow, glaciologists were able to measure accurately the snowfall since its abandonment. Inside the cruiser they found a litter of old magazines, papers, and cigarettes.
What thereafter became of the vehicle has remained the subject of conjecture. The approximate location at which it was abandoned is known, but the cruiser is nowhere to be found. One theory is that it broke off on an ice floe, floated out to sea, and sank.

I have it on good authority that the snow cruiser was refused permission to enter hollow earth because it was too wide for the narrow lanes there.....
I think in the end the Atlanteans sold it to the Martians - its big wheels proving rather ore effective in the Martian deserts than the Antarctic snow.
