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.
