The white two-piece suit John Lennon wore on the cover of the Beatles' Abbey Road album has been sold at a US auction for $46,000.

The suit and other Beatles memorabilia were sold on Saturday at the Braswell Galleries' annual New Year's Day auction to an online bidder who wanted to remain anonymous.

Owner Kathy Braswell told the Connecticut Post the holiday auction was the galleries' biggest event of the year.

The suit was custom made for Lennon by French designer Ted Lapidus.

Hank Gioiella of Darien, Connecticut, paid $5500 for a rusted green 1972 Chrysler station wagon Lennon and Yoko Ono owned.
