SHANGHAI, March 6 (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co and its Chinese joint ventures sold 73,040 vehicles in China in February, up 67 percent from a year earlier, the U.S. automaker said on Thursday.

That follows a 53 percent year-on-year jump in January and 35 percent rise in December.

The company's sales in the first two months of the year came to 167,506 cars, up 59 percent from the same period a year earlier. ,

Ford's China sales is bolstered by continued strong demand for its Ford Focus, the best-selling nameplate in the country last year, as well as its Ford Mondeo.
