FORD TRUCKS SET SALES PACE IN FEBRUARY FOR PITTSBURGH DEALERS

 PITTSBURGH, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Truck sales set the pace for Ford dealers in the Pittsburgh area in February.
 Ronald Tillier, manager of Ford Division's Pittsburgh Regional Sales Office, said February truck sales were led by the Ford Bronco with an increase of 77.8 percent compared to previous year levels. The Ford Econoline Van and the Ford Ranger 4x4 pickup rose 53.6 and 37.7 percent, respectively.
 Although total car sales declined, the Ford Festiva gained 73 percent on a comparative basis for February while the Ford Thunderbird rose 56.4 percent and the Ford Probe went up l4.5 percent.
 "We're quite pleased with the February sales performance of our major new 1993 model products in the region, particularly the Probe and Ranger," said Tillier.
 "There are many signs that the economic recovery is continuing. Although consumer confidence recently has weakened somewhat, due primarily to uncertainties about President Clinton's budget proposal, the automotive market appears to have momentum."
 February was the 15th consecutive month that Ford's total vehicle volume was up versus the prior year despite the severe winter weather over much of the nation. Total car volume also increased for the 14th straight month.
