A souped-up Mini Cooper driven by Sir Paul McCartney at the height of Beatlemania has failed to fetch its reserve price at auction.
The car, which includes designer seats, soundproofing, electric windows and a record player, went under the hammer at Bonhams in San Francisco.
It's believed the seller might accept a lower offer and a decision will be announced in the next day or so.
Sir Paul used the Mini as his runaround in London between 1965 and 1970 and was often pictured in it with his first wife, Linda.
He was reported to have taken her home in it the first night they met.
The singer is also believed to have written the lyrics to The Beatles' song Fool On The Hill while sitting in the car.
