Ford discovers, recreates long-lost photos of Santa with a 1968 Bronco. Santa Claus doesn’t usually have problems getting around in the winter, but you can almost be certain he would use a 4×4 truck if he didn’t have a sled and flying reindeer to rely on. Santa would for sure drive a 4×4 if he didn’t have flying reindeer!
As a matter of fact, it turns out Kris Kringle once took up a Ford Bronco for use as a holiday hauler.
Ford archivist Ted Ryan recently came across some long-lost photos of Santa Claus posing with a frozen generation Bronco in a cold-weather test facility.
The pictures were apparently taken for a proposed feature for the company’s in-house Ford World newspaper, but they were never published and have been stored away ever since.
Instead, the Bronco team invited Santa Claus back to recreate the images in a Race Red 2021 Bronco packed with presents and encased in ice inside a -30 degree chamber.
Unfortunately, the Bronco doesn’t go on sale until the summer, so you’ll have to wait until next Christmas to find one under the tree.Categories: Auto News, Blog
