John Lennon’s car will be featured in the docket for Worldwide Auctioneers’ inaugural Scottsdale sale, in January.
“We are thrilled to announce the addition of this historic motorcar to our Scottsdale lineup, once the personal property of one of the most influential and celebrated music icons on the planet,” John Kruse of Worldwide said in a news release.

“This is a rare chance for a collector to make a once-in-a-lifetime acquisition.”
The auction house said that the vehicle is in excellent condition, finished in blue with right-hand drive and with automatic transmission, an option requested by Lennon himself when he put the order for the car.
“The response from both prospective buyers and sellers to our inaugural Arizona sale has been fantastic,” Egan said. “We look forward to welcoming old friends and new to Scottsdale in January with a very diverse lineup of great motorcars.”
