FORD VEHICLE SALES CONTINUE TO CLIMB

 DETROIT, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Dealers in Ford Division's Detroit Region saw April car sales rise 22.2 percent and truck sales increase 10.5 percent.
 Dealers in the Region -- which includes Michigan, northern Indiana and northwest Ohio -- sold 5,613 cars and 6,945 trucks in April.
 Car sales for the first four months of 1993 rose 8.1 percent or 18,435 units sold and truck sales increased 9.5 percent or 22,957 units sold compared to the same period in 1992, said Mike Duffy, Ford Division regional operations manager.
 "Sales were paced by the Ford Probe, up 108 percent and the Ford Ranger, up 46 percent," said Duffy. "Ford Festiva sales recorded a 53 percent gain for April.
 "The automotive market appears to be accelerating its positive momentum, as witnessed by three substantial month-to-month improvements in succession," he said. "We estimate that final April figures will indicate a seasonally adjusted annual selling rate above 14 million total vehicles for the first time since September of 1990 and the strongest total truck market since August of 1989."
 April was the 17th month in a row that Ford's total vehicle volume was up versus the prior year and the 16th straight month that total car volume also increased.
