STAMFORD, Connecticut— The white two-piece suit John Lennon wore on the cover of the Beatles' "Abbey Road" album was sold at auction in Connecticut for $46,000.

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

Owner Kathy Braswell tells the Connecticut Post the holiday auction is their biggest event of the year.

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

Hank Gioiella of Darien paid $5,500 for a rusted green 1972 Chrysler station wagon Lennon and Yoko Ono owned.
