FORD DEALERS REPORT STRONG SALES IN JANUARY

 BUFFALO, Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The 1993 calendar year opened on a high note as Ford (NYSE: F) dealers in the Buffalo area reported strong increases in car and truck sales for January.
 Car sales rose 15.7 percent compared to January 1992, while truck sales increased 63.6 percent over previous year levels.
 Ronald Tillier, manager of Ford Division's Pittsburgh Regional Sales Office, which covers the Buffalo area, said car sales were paced by the Ford Taurus, America's best-selling car in 1992, up 89.5 percent compared to January 1992. Sales for the Ford Probe, Motor Trend's 1993 "Car of the Year," rose 78.9 percent for the period.
 Truck sales were highlighted by the Ford Ranger 4x4 pickup, up 361.5 percent over last January, he said. Ford Econoline Van sales increased 92.1 percent over 1992 January.
 "All in all, we've begun 1993 on a positive note," Tillier said. "Our dealers are optimistic that the major new truck and car programs for 1993 will stimulate retail sales of Ford and Lincoln-Mercury products.
 "January was the 14th month in a row that Ford Motor Company's total vehicle volume was up versus the prior year," Tillier added. "Growing numbers of consumers are recognizing the superior value of our products."
