I'm offering for sale this beautifully restored, extremely well-maintained Tiger Moth.

VH BAL was owned by my Dad, John Murphy (recently passed) for over 40 years, and fastidiously looked after and hangared in Coffs Harbour.

It is now at Cesnock for inspection

Needs a 100hrly now which will be included.
