FOR COLLEGE GRADS: A FORD OR MERCURY CUM LAUDE

 FOR COLLEGE GRADS: A FORD OR MERCURY CUM LAUDE
 DEARBORN, Mich., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Everything is falling into


place. You breeze through your last finals, the cap and gown fit reasonably well, and you even have a job lined up after graduation.
 There's just one problem: You don't have reliable wheels to get to the job. And you don't have the cash or credit to buy a new one.
 But you're in luck. With the Ford-Mercury College Graduate Program you can receive $500 purchase or leasing assistance (on top of other incentives available at time of purchase) and pre-approved credit levels on any 1992 or 1993 Ford car or truck, or any Mercury car.
 "With youthful, sporty and affordable vehicles like the all-new 1993 Ford Probe, as well as Escort, Festiva, Ranger truck and Mercury Tracer and Capri, we've got the vehicles to appeal to college graduates," said Robert L. Rewey, vice president - Ford North American Sales Operations.
 "Our goal is to build a larger and more brand-loyal owner base among college graduates," Rewey added. "This program offers great value -- I just wish Ford had it when I graduated from college in the 1960s."
 To qualify, students must graduate before Dec. 31, 1992, from an accredited college or university with a bachelor or graduate degree. And those who graduated as far back as Oct. 1, 1989, still are eligible -- as long as they haven't already taken advantage of the program. Eligible graduates will receive the $500 assistance whether they pay cash or finance through Ford Credit.
 Participating Ford and Lincoln-Mercury dealers can arrange financing for qualified buyers through Ford Credit. Buyers must have verifiable employment beginning within 120 days of date of purchase and at a salary sufficient to cover ordinary living expenses and the vehicle payment. A down payment is not required if the amount financed does not exceed the preapproved credit level. Graduates don't have to have an established credit record -- but they may not qualify if they have a negative credit history.
 Those graduating with a nursing or associate's degree from an accredited school are eligible for the $500 incentive and may qualify for financing through Ford Credit.
 Graduates also are eligible to receive any retail incentive that may be available at the time of purchase in addition to the $500 purchase or leasing assistance (except for incentives through a separate program covering first-time buyers or special incentive programs, like the Employee Purchase "A" Plan.)
 For additional details about the 1992 Ford-Mercury College Graduate Program, students can call 1-800-321-1536. Ford also is sending program details to more than 1.5 million 1992 college seniors and graduate students nationwide at their school address.
