Lennon put 20,000 miles on the car before selling it in 1967 (According to a Liverpool Echo article in 2011, the car was sold earlier). This historic motor was added to the Modena Ferrari collection by the 1980s and painted red, but was restored to its original specs, along with Lennon's registration number DUL 4C, for the auction. Only 500 of the 1965 330 GTs were ever made, adding further rarity to its Fab providence. Lennon shares an excited thumbs-up with writing partner, Paul McCartney, from his car in a photo below- a pose that Linda Eastman (McCartney) would later capture at their Sgt. Pepper's release party. Beep Beep, Yeah!
