Lincoln sales were up 9 percent, Jaguar sales were up 11 percent and Volvo
sales were up 6 percent -- its 17th month in a row of higher sales. Land
Rover sales were down slightly from last year's record sales.
Ford, America's best-selling brand of cars and trucks for 17 years in a
row, posted sales of 259,791, up 2 percent compared with a year ago, including a sales increase of 16 percent for its legendary pony car, the Ford Mustang. Since its introduction almost 40 years ago (April 17, 1964), over 7.6 million Mustangs have been sold in the U.S.

Mountaineer (up 27 percent) and added sales from the Mercury Monterey minivan.
