FORD VEHICLE SALES UP IN INDIANAPOLIS

 INDIANAPOLIS, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Led in April by a huge increase in sales of the Ford Thunderbird, Ford Division car sales in the Indianapolis area continue to rise.
 Ford Division car sales for the first four months of 1993 in the Indianapolis metropolitan area were 8 percent above the same period last year. Sales climbed 1 percent for the month of April.
 Thunderbird sales are up 213 percent for the year in the Indianapolis area, and 104 percent for April. Sales of the all-new Ford Probe are up 52 percent for the year, and 12 percent for April.
 Sales of the all-new Ford Ranger in Indianapolis increased 21 percent for the year, and 42 percent for the month. Ford Division truck sales rose 2 percent for the year, although they declined 15 percent in April due to a drop in fleet sales. Retail truck sales were up 6 percent for the month.
 "Ford's total vehicle volume nationwide in April was above the prior year for the 17th month in a row," said Joseph King, Ford Division's regional sales manager.
 "The automotive market appears to be accelerating its positive momentum, as there now have been three substantial month-to-month improvements in succession," King added. "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."
