The white, two-piece suit John Lennon wore on the cover of the Beatles’ Abbey Road album are to be auctioned in Connecticut later this month.

The suit, the blazer Lennon wore in the Imagine music video and a 1972 Chrysler station wagon that once belonged to Lennon and Yoko Ono are among the memorabilia being auctioned by Braswell Galleries in Connecticut on New Year’s Day.

Auction house co-owner Gary Braswell said he did know how much the wool-blend suit would fetch, but noted that the suit and blazer together sold for 120,000 dollars (£76,700) in 2005.

Music fans marked the 30th anniversary of Lennon’s death on December 8.
