Here pictured is the original registration form for that fabled vehicle, which was signed by John Lennon on the day he took delivery, June 3, 1965. In the upper left hand corner, written in another hand is his address in Surrey, England, just above where he signed nicely in black fountain pen. The middle of the form contains information about the automobile including the model and make, as well as the serial number and license plate, which was FJB 111C. The yearly registration fee for this vehicle was 17 pounds 10 pence. This is a remarkable document pertaining to the history of one of the most famous cars in the world, signed by the original owner of the vehicle, who just happened to be, the one and only John Winston Lennon - Beatle.
