Les voitures construites par la société turinoise Ceirano (active entre 1919 et 1931) étaient commercialisées aux Royaume-Uni par Messieurs Newton & Bennett sous le nom de « Newton-Ceirano ». Une lettre de M. C. D. Morray au précédent prorpiétaire, Nick Sloan, qui fait partie du dossier historique vendu avec la voiture, nous apprend que le premier propriétaire de cette voiture serait un certain Ernest Galloway de Thropton, dans le Northumberland, celui qui avait importé la Stanley Steamer au Royaume-Uni. L'histoire de la voiture au cours de l'avant-guerre est inconnue, mais on pense qu'elle a résidé dans le nord-est de l'Angleterre pendant tout ce temps avant d'être remisée durant la guerre. Le journal de bord fourni montre qu'en 1949 elle a été immatriculée par M. C. D. Morray. La voiture est ensuite passée dans différentes mains au cours des années 1950, toujours dans le nord-est de l'Angleterre.

En 1958, Frederick Sloan du Northumberland a acheté la Newton-Ceirano à un groupe d'étudiants qui l'avait utilisée pour une virée sur le continent. La voiture était un cadeau pour son fils Nick, aujourd'hui bien connu des milieux de la collection. Quand Nick Sloan quitta la maison pour accomplir son service militaire, la voiture fut vendue et connut deux propriétaires avant d'être rachetée par la famille Sloan à un certain docteur Gill, en 1963. Nick Sloan garda alors la voiture pendant 45 ans, l'utilisant pour des sorties familiales et des manifestations du VSCC.
Vers la fin de la possession de Nick Slaon, la Newton-Ceirano fut heurtée par un conducteur ivre au volant d'une voiture moderne. S'étant lancé dans la restauration de la voiture endommagée et se rendant compte qu'il ne la mènerait pas à son terme, Nick Sloan fut encouragé à vendre la voiture à son actuel propriétaire, un ami passionné qui a mené à bien le travail. Au cours de la restauration, la voiture a été repeinte en vert foncé, alors que la majeure partie de la sellerie est restée d'origine, de même que les instruments. On nous informe que la voiture a parcouru seulement 400 miles (640 km) depuis la fin de la restauration.

Immatriculée TY 161 au Royaume-Uni, cette Newton-Ceirano est extrêmement rare et en grande partie d'origine pour son âge, modèle d'une marque respectée et de grande qualité. Elle est élégante, minutieusement préservée et possède d'excellentes performances pour sa taille. Dotée de toutes les qualités recherché par tout collectionneur de modèle rares, cette machine « vintage » mérite une attention toute particulière.

Cars made by the Ceirano company of Turin (active between 1919 and 1931) were marketed in the UK by Messrs Newton & Bennett under the 'Newton-Ceirano' name. A letter from Mr C D Morray to previous owner Nick Sloan, which forms part of the accompanying history file, tells us that this car's first owner is believed to have been one Ernest Galloway of Thropton, Northumberland, who was responsible for introducing the Stanley Steamer to the UK. The pre-war history of this Newton-Ceirano is unknown, but it is thought to have resided in the North East of England for all of this time before being laid up in Gateshead during the war. The accompanying original logbook shows that by 1949 it was registered to Mr C D Morray. The car then passed through a number of owners during the 1950s, all in the North East of England.

In 1958, Frederick Sloan of Northumberland purchased the Newton-Ceirano from a group of students who had used it for a continental tour. The car was to be a gift for his son Nick, now a well-known Vintage protagonist. When Nick Sloan left home to carry out his National Service, the car was sold and passed through two owners before being repurchased by the Sloan family from a Dr Gill in 1963. Nick Sloan then kept the car for 45 years, using it on VSCC events and for family tours.

Towards the end of Nick Sloan's ownership, the Newton-Ceirano was hit by a drunk driver at the wheel of a modern vehicle. Having embarked on the damaged car's restoration and concerned that he would never finish the project, Nick Sloan was persuaded to sell it to the current owner, a fellow enthusiast who has completed the rebuild. During restoration the car was repainted black from dark green, while much of the upholstery is original, as are the instruments. We are informed that the car has only covered around 400 miles since the rebuild's completion.
Registered 'TY 161' in the UK, this Newton-Ceirano is extremely rare and highly original for its age, from a respected marque and of high quality. It is stylish, finely detailed and possesses excellent performance for its size. Possessing all the qualities sought by the serious collector of rare models, this fine Vintage-era motorcar is worthy of the closest inspection.
