WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED PRODUCTION

 DETROIT, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. car and truck assemblers will produce an estimated 185,356 vehicles this week, Ward's Automotive Reports announced today.
 Due to all union-affiliated assembly plants being closed tomorrow (April 9) for Good Friday -- those plants also will be closed on Monday, April 12, for the Easter celebration -- this week's scheduled output is well below last week's revised count of 241,730, Ward's said.
 Also this week, only three U.S. vehicle assembly facilities -- two truck plants at General Motors Corp. closed for model changeovers, and one Chrysler Corp. plant due to a parts shortage -- are idle this week, reported Ward's.
 Calendar-year 1993 U.S. car and truck production through the end of this week stands at an estimated 3,054,012, 17.3 percent ahead of like- 1992, Ward's said.
 Of the cars and trucks slated for production this week in the United States, GM accounts for 37.8 percent; Ford Motor Co., 31.3 percent; Chrysler, 12.6 percent; Nissan Motor Mfg. Corp., 3.8 percent; Honda of America Mfg. Inc., 3.8 percent; New United Motor Mfg.Inc., 2.6 percent; Toyota Motor Mfg.
