FORD CAR AND TRUCK SALES INCREASE AGAIN IN DETROIT AREA

 FORD CAR AND TRUCK SALES INCREASE AGAIN IN DETROIT AREA
 DETROIT, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) car and


truck sales in the Detroit area continued to climb in June -- the seventh month in a row that total company vehicle sales nationwide increased over the same period last year.
 Ford dealers in Ford Division's Detroit Region, which includes Michigan, northern Indiana and northwest Ohio, sold 16,051 cars and 12,108 trucks -- increases of 36.5 percent and 43.9 percent, respectively, over 1991 -- and the best new car and truck sales volume in more than a year. For the first half of 1992, Detroit Region car and truck sales are up 13.3 percent and 31.2 percent, respectively.
 "We're encouraged that the automotive market's gradual recovery continued in June," said Timothy Boese, Ford Division's Detroit regional sales manager. "Looking ahead, we're hopeful that the recent actions of the Federal Reserve Board will provide the necessary stimulus to sustain the economy's recovery from the recession."
 Boese pointed out that truck sales in the Detroit Region continue to be among the best in the country, and year-over-year improvement is outpacing national and industry increases.
 Ford Motor Company closed out the first half of 1992 with 1,591,759 vehicle sales, a 10.2-percent increase over the first six months of 1991. Ford is the only company to gain total car and truck market share so far this year -- an increase of 1.3 percentage points.
