The Beatles’ late legend, John Lennon’s official Instagram page revealed an interesting fact about John and showed his interesting New Zealand made care, Austin Princess.

As you will read the caption of the photo below, John Lennon’s official Instagram page shared the details and specifications of John’s car.

Here is the description of the photos:

“JOHN LENNON’S 1956 AUSTIN PRINCESS⠀

As featured in the ‘Jealous Guy’ section of the 1971 IMAGINE film, this Type A135 was powered by a 3,995cc overhead-valve inline 6-cylinder engine with 125hp and 4-speed manual transmission.

It featured independent front suspension with coil springs, a solid rear beam axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs and 4-wheel drum brakes. With a 3,353mm wheelbase, chassis #DH2-12785 was completed with hearse coachwork by Arthur Mulliner Ltd. of North Hampton.

Initially acquired by a generations-old mortuary, Ann Bonham & Son, the Austin hearse was purchased in August 1971 by John Lennon, as reflected by the original registration document that features his printed name and signature. John unusually customized the Princess with two rows of airline seats (complete with ashtray arms).”
