Default Shrivardhan Kanoria

Hi Guys, following is the history of this Lambda. In 1996 Mr. Shashi Kanoria passed on this car to Mr.Ranjit Mullik, who passed it on to Mr. Shomnath Roychoudry,who passed it on to Ranjit Mulik again, who passed it on to a collecter in Orissa. When Dad restored it from a state of junk, he painted it Sky blue, then it was green for a while with Mr.Roychodry, who painted it white before passing it onto Mr.Mulik.I have travelled in this car enough as a child.The original registeration was probably WBA 5570 (will confirm)

Refer posts 20 & 22 above.
Now we have a mystery. Was the Lancia restored by both Mr. Kanoria and Mr. Sircar? Such a scenario can happen with change of ownership.
Can someone clarify?

Cheers
Harit

I think i was not clear.Mr Shashi kanoria and Mr Sircar both have restored this car but Mr kanoria had done it first and painted it sky blue before he sold it to Mr. Ranjit Mulik.When Mr.Shomnath Roychoudhry bought it from Mr Ranjit Mulik it was green in colour.Mr.Rahul Sircar restored this car for Shomnath Roychoudhry from when it was green to White as shown in the above pictures.Then after restoration Mr.Shomnath Roychoudhry sold this car to Mr.Ranjit Mulik when these abouve photographs were taken and after which Mr.Mulik sold it to someone in Orissa.

So Mr.Shashi Kanoria restored this car from junk and Mr.Rahul Sircar Re-restored this car after it was painted green.

Hope it is clear to you
