(AP) American car makers will tougher competition from Japa- nese imports than from the Volkswagen as they try to sell their new sub-compacts, Henry Ford II says. "The Japanese have good styling, good quality and that makes them good Ford said Tuesday. "We feel they are going to be the more difficult contenders." Ford, board chairman of Ford Motor Co., was hi Las Vegas for the introduction of the 1971 Ford and Lincoln-Mercury automo- biles. He predicted that the sub- compacts would reverse the up- ward trend in foreign car sales in the United States and that Ford's sub-compact Pinto, to be unveiled Thursday, will outsell Volkswagen. Foreign car sales amounted to 13 per cent of total U.S. auto sales in the last year. Volkswa- gen accounted for about hah" those sales. Japanese cars, pri- marily Toyota and Datsun, ac- counted for one-third of them. The Japanese lack the U.S. marketing experience and dealer outlets built up by Volk- swagen, but Ford said lie ex- pects them to overcome those obstacles soon. Storm Forms MA1MI, Fla.
