Don’t think anybody makes Datsun style emblem that’s a direct fit to 370z.

There are many old school Datsun emblems on eBay and Amazon, but I’ve never confirmed the diameter. Plus, the backside of those emblems certainly aren’t direct fit...some are flat, some are meant to be bolted in, etc.

The hamburger emblems that are stock on the 370Z fit into a unique indentation on each bumper (different sizes F/R) and does not match any previous Z emblem iteration. Your best bet is probably to modify/shave the bumper to fit the emblem you want.

With the right amount of money, anything is possible.

The other option is get get a programmer friend with a 3D printer and ask him/her to custom make you one.

Ohhhhh damn didnít realize that at all. Would really need something specifically made for the 370z. And donít see that happening as itís not something thatís in demand. Thanks for all the replies guys. I still think it would be cool. Every time I go to the Nissan dealer I buy new Datsun gear lol, coffee mugs, t-shirts, travel mugs etc. I love the branding. I even have the Datsun plate frame on my 370.

Thumbs up

Datsun emblems on a Z sounds like a unique idea. If you search though there is a lot of options on badges for your Z.

I thought about this before, but I settled for the old school fairladyz emblem instead. I got a ton of compliments on it.

Yeah I love the old fairlady emblem. One day I am going to shave the rear hamburger and go with that one.

That’s sweet, but IMHO it would look so much better without the hamburger. It kinda looks like a dealer sticker? Something is off to my eye. Maybe put it on the trunk lid under the spoiler? Not hating! Just seems a bit “off”...

I also added the old badge, here is what mine looked like. You can get them from z1. I cut off the posts that would go into the body of older Z and used 3m to adhere

I second this. The emblem looks great, but I think it's too crowded and has too much going on in that one general area.
