From photos discovered in the Ford Archives, it appears Santa Claus was thinking about trading in his sleigh for a Bronco.

Ford Motor Company said in a press release that their archives manager found unpublished images from 1968 of Santa checking out the Gen-1 Bronco. The images have been waiting to be discovered for 52 years.

Ford said the images show Santa in Ford product development's cold room labs in Dearborn; the images are believed to have been shot at the time with the intent to run in Ford World, a bi-weekly newspaper.

The company decided the discovery warranted a remake since Ford unveiled the all-new Bronco this year.
