The popular Ford Mustang in its early convertible variant, illustrated by Classic Lines Artist Mike Harbar.

The first-generation Ford Mustang was manufactured by Ford from March 1964 until 1973. The Mustang created the "pony car" class of American muscle cars (a reference to the car's galloping horse logo), affordable sporty coupes with long hoods and short rear decks, and gave rise to competitors such as the Chevrolet Camaro, Pontiac Firebird, AMC Javelin, Chrysler's revamped Plymouth Barracuda, and the second generation Dodge Challenger. The Mustang is also credited for inspiring the designs of coupés such as the Toyota Celica and Ford Capri. More than 10 million Mustangs have been produced in the U.S. since 1964.

English born and bred and now living on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula in Australia, Mike Harbar has a passion and natural talent for illustrating cars, boats and planes. Trained as an industrial designer, Mike understands the basic engineering principals to the artistic flowing lines. This is very apparent when you see the accuracy and the attention to detail he can achieve just by using his lead pencils and watercolour.

We are privileged to offer a large selection of Mike's works under license from the artist.

Available as an archival quality reproduction in 7 standard metric sizes in the following formats: an unframed print; a framed print; a stretched canvas; a canvas floating frame. Frames are available in white, natural oak, dark oak and black sustainable timber.

Please refer to our FAQs below for more details and don't hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

  • This option is for you if you've fallen in love with one of our restored images and you've got the perfect frame or you know where to source one.
  • We print soon after we receive an order and we don't muck around with quality. We print on 230gsm acid-free, wood-free, pH-neutral, archival matte paper using premium archival pigment inks. In a nutshell, the paper is top notch and the high-level digital printing results in superior colour saturation.
  • Our 7 print sizes fit standard metric frames - easy!
  • All prints include an off-white printed border because we think it looks fabulous. If you really don't want a border let us know in the Notes section at checkout.
  • When it comes time to ship we take great care with packaging because we've learned over the years that the freight process can be a little rough! Unframed prints are gently rolled and shipped in sturdy tubes and we haven't had a complaint yet.
Unframed Print Example
    • This option is for you if you've fallen in love with one of our restored images and you want it professionally framed.
    • We print as per Unframed Prints above and then ask our framer to frame in your choice of white, natural oak, dark oak or black sustainable timber.
    • Frames measure 20mm on the face and 40mm on the side for our A3, A2, A1, B2 and B1 sizes. Frames measure 30mm on the face and 40mm on the side for our A0 size.
    • Our framer uses Shinkolite 3mm cast acrylic rather than glass: it is lightweight, virtually unbreakable, has greater optical clarity than glass and provides your print with long term protection from harmful UV rays.
    • Frames are finished on the back with d-rings, wire and bump-ons and ready to hang.
    • Please note we do not offer our largest size B0 as a framed print due to shipping difficulties. Please order the B0 size as a stretched canvas or canvas floating frame instead.
    • Our framer will despatch direct to you in professional packaging.
    • Framed prints are not available outside Australia.
    Framed Print Example
      • This option is for you if you prefer a textured image without a frame.
      • We print on Bauhaus bright white canvas 380gsm which has a superior bright white matte surface with perfect colour control and clear texture.
      • The canvas is a cotton/polyester blend. Polyester is added to give greater tension across the image so it doesn’t sag over time.
      • The printed canvas is then stretched onto a pine stretcher bar which is strong, durable and from planted forests so environmentally friendly.
      • All finishing materials used are museum grade and acid free.
      • Our framer will despatch direct to you in professional packaging.
      • Stretched canvas option is not available outside Australia.
      Stretched Canvas Example
        • This option is for you if you prefer a textured image with a frame.
        • We print as per Stretched Canvas above and our professional framer then frames with a 5mm gap between the canvas and frame.
        • This contemporary, popular style gives the illusion that your canvas picture is actually “floating” within the frame as the picture sits away from the frame instead of the edge of the picture disappearing behind the frame itself (as it does with standard print framing).
        • Frames measure 10mm on the face and 40mm on the side and colours available include white, natural oak, dark oak and black sustainable timber.
        • Frames are finished on the back with d-rings, wire and bump-ons and ready to hang.
        • Our framer will despatch direct to you in professional packaging.
        • Canvas floating frame option is not available outside Australia.
        Canvas Floating Frame Example
          • Retro Print Merchants is proudly Australian owned and operated and all our prints are officially endorsed by the Australian Made Campaign.
          • All artworks are professionally printed and professionally framed here in Australia by local suppliers who are as pedantic about quality as we are.
          • We ran a successful graphic design company for 20 years so we know a thing or two about image quality. If we can't restore an image to the quality necessary to enlarge it then we won't add it to the collection.
          • We understand our customers and we respect them. We will treat you the way we would like to be treated.
          • We aim to provide quality prints and canvas art at a reasonable price so that people from all walks of life can enjoy these wonderful vintage images in their own homes.
          • We're not out to build an empire nor have the most instagram likes. We just want to keep doing what we have loved doing for a number of years, do it better than a number of others in this industry and continue to be proud of our achievements.
