(Ogden-AP) -- The increased demands for security have been good news for an Ogden company. Ogden's International Armoring Corporation expects to double its work force to keep up with demand for a new product: an armored Lincoln Town Car.
Ford Motor Company announced the cooperative effort yesterday. Price tag for the armored Lincoln luxury cars will be around 135-thousand dollars.
They're said to be bulletproof, able to run even if the tires are shot out, and have special gas tanks.
Frank Ruiz, executive vice president of International Armoring, says by April, his company should be building six to nine vehicles per week.
Ford says most of the armored Lincolns will be sold abroad, in countries where kidnappings and ambush are common.
