March auto industry sales
plummet to fourteen-year low

DETROIT (A) - Sharp de-
clines in sales at Ford Motor
Co. and American Motors offset
gains by General Motors and
Chrysler, sending auto indus-
'' try sales in early March to a
14-year low.
Sales for the March 1-10 per-
iod the first since most cash
rebate plans ended, were off 3.4
per cent from the depressed
year - ago levels.
EVEN SO, analysts said the
industry's performance in theI
latest period was not as weak
as had been forecast. Many ana-
lysts had expected a sharp drop
in deliveriesafter the rebate
program ended.
GM said yesterday that sales
in the period were up nearly 23I
per cent over its sorely depres-
sed levels of a year ago, and
Chrysler reported a modest im-
provement of six-tenths of one
per cent.
But Ford sales plummeted 35
" ' " , per cent from the year before
AP Photo to their worst levels for the per-
iod in at least 11 years, and

AMC sales were down 21.7 per
cent.
SALES for the period were
139,616, compared with 144,465
a year ago. Sales so far this
calendar year are 1,138,025,1
down 10 per cent from 1,262,572
last year.
Analysts said the selling rate
inearly March was down 40
per cent from the end of Feb-
ruary. They said this was simi-
lar to the figures over the past
five years, indicating that there
was no significant post-rebate
lull. Sales normally strengthen!
toward the end of a month as
dealers bargain harder to meet
their bills.
Sales a year ago had been the
lowest for an early March since
1961 as a result of fuel short-
ages which discouraged con-
sumers from buying large cars.
MEANWHILE, in Washington,;
a General Motors official told
reporters at a meeting on en-
ergy issues his company plan-
ned to improve its "sales-

weighted" gasoline mileage, a
figure based on sales and fuel
economy, from 12.2 miles per1
gallon in 1974 models to about
19 miles per gallon by 1980.
Fred Bowditch, executive as-
sistant to the GM vice presi-
dent for environmental affairs,
said GM would trim the size
and weight of all of its models,
would make their equipment'
more efficient, and would sacsi-
fice some performance for bet-C
ter fuel economy.
The latest sales figures were
about what analysts had pre-
dicted, except at AMC.
Although the nation's No. 4
auto maker had a strong per-
iod last year because of its em-
phasis on small cars, analysts
had predicted AMC would do as
well or better this time because
of its new model Pacer, which
went on sale March .1. The ana-
lysts said the Pacer would give
AMC a stronger lineup.j
