I just learned something rather disappointing about one of my favorite companies today.  It seems Clinton sold out their molds and dies as they quit the business to a Newton Manufacturing Company out of Singapore.  Newton used the Clinton name for a few years then went to producing their engines as the "Newton." 


I guess Clinton was the first to sell to China, also, then.  Tecumseh has followed suit before they keeled over.  It must be an easy way to sell off your dies and molds before you quit to recover some cash.


Here's a Singapore Clinton that has turned up NOS.  I'm sure it is rather rare since it is made in the short period between the sale and when Newton began using their own name. 




It already is working its way up the money scale.  I'm curious to see how much it runs for.
