Download PDF for this date

Israeli officials reported that the management of Ford in Israel had been asked to speed up assembly of cars to meet local needs. The request was made at a meeting between Transport Minister Moshe Carmel and Dr. Shaul Lifshitz, a Ford representative. The locally-assembled Fords, which contain several Israeli-made components, sells for about $425 less than the imported version. There is currently a 12-month waiting list for the vehicle.
