The federal government will not be buying cars equipped with air bags this year because it was unable to agree on the purchase price with Ford Motor Co., officials said. The General Services Administration, which buys about 50,000 vehicles a year for the government, announced it had decided not to sign a contract with Ford for 1986 model year cars. Ford is the only U.S. auto manufacturer now offering air bags as optional equipment.
