I thought the seat look kind of wide. I know it's probably factory but I had to post it anyway.

It almost looks like a hydraulic drive rather than hydrostatic.

Those seats aren't nearly as wide as they look.  A normal size adult and a small child would be fairly comfortable but even an older child would be getting tight.

 

As far as the drive system, they called it "Pennamatic" hydrostatic in their tech manual.  The engine drives a Sundstrand hydrostatic transmission via belt off the PTO end of the crank.  The transmission is connected to a driveshaft and sprocket which drives the corresponding sprocket on the rear axle through a chain.  The Meteors still use the narrowed Mopar rear axle like all the Panzers before them.
