The white, two-piece suit John Lennon wore on the cover of the Beatles' "Abbey Road" album will be among items auctioned in Connecticut less than a month after the 30th anniversary of his death, The Associated Press reported.

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 of Norwalk on New Year's Day.

Auction house co-owner Gary Braswell tells The Hour newspaper the suit's current owner decided to sell after experiencing some economic hardship. He did not disclose the seller's name.

Braswell said he did not know how much the wool-blend suit would fetch, but noted that the suit and blazer together sold for $120,000 in 2005.

Music fans marked the 30th anniversary of Lennon's death on Dec. 8.
