If cars had ears...<br />
<br />
A historic Rolls-Royce belonging to Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery that was used to ferry King George VI, General Eisenhower and Winston Churchill between secret D-Day planning meetings has emerged for sale. <br />
<br />
In the throes of the Second World War the handsome 1936 Phantom III operated as Montgomery's staff car while he was based at Southwick House near Portsmouth alongside Eisenhower. <br />
<br />
It was in the 'map room' at Southwick House that the Allied invasion of Normandy was plotted. <br />
<br />
In recent years the car has been in the hands of a private owner who has now offered it for sale through Cheshire Classic Cars for £200,000.
