John Lennon’s Ferrari for Sale

Bonhams/Simon Clay(NEW YORK) -- John Lennon’s 1965 Ferrari can be yours. The blue Ferrari 330GT coupe with a matching interior will be auctioned off in July by the London-based auction house Bonhams.

The fully restored car is expected to be sold for $340,000.

Lennon bought the car in 1965 right after he got his driver’s license. He personally handpicked it from a selection of Maseratis, Aston Martins, and Jaguars luxury car dealers sent him, according to Bonhams’ website.

That same year the Beatles coincidentally debuted their single “Ticket to Ride,” which reached No. 1 in the United States and the United Kingdom, according to Bonhams.

According to a driver’s log book, which comes with the car, Lennon drove 20,000 miles in the Ferrari between 1965 and 1968.
