The C110

Badges

Recommended Posts

Gday all,

Im in the market for some rear quater panel Skyline badges to fit a c110. Also, perhaps some smilarily placed 'gt' badges if possible? And at a long shot a rear light assembly panel 2000gtx badge? Any help appreciated,

Regards

Tom

I looked for that 240K GL badge and couldn't find it :| I swear I have one...

I have a few badges here and there but I some are missing pins and even those I'm pretty keen on hanging onto, I've got a rear quarter 'Skyline' badge sitting in my grille, I was going to (eventually) get around to making some copies up for my car but that's a wee way off. I've also got to make a trip to the local wreckers here and grab a 'SKYLINE' dash badge for Lachlan and a few other 2000GT-X badges from the JDM C110 sitting at the wreckers.

I know this doesn't really help your quest other than to prove that the badges are out there, it's just a matter of finding them. ;)

$90AUD??!?!?!!!!!!

I picked up a spare one last week off an auction site for $15NZD which is what.. about $2AUD ! :D ok.. our dollar isnt that bad but.. still!

Is that the average or an OK price for such an item in Aus?

(Good score on the Bluebird badge, BTW, I would have taken that for $4 as well ;) )

Yeah good price

I know it sounds like a fair bit, but ive been in the hunt for sooooooooooooo long

Best price has been $130

At the weekend some guy was almost going to 'give' me one [as in a few bucks], but he then had a chat to his son who was, shall we say a 'little' more literate and the deal was off...bloody knowledgeable kids

I heard 240 and $300 from other wreckers earlier in the day... LOL

You pic of the Dizzy looks like my too Dizzys. One is from an 83 R30 and the other is from a 82-83 280ZX. Very easy to wire up too. Just as soon as I work it out again because I seem to of lost my wiring Diagram.

I was going to post a new topic about this, but here seems good enough- from pictures I've found there were (at least) 3 different rear panel "SKYLINE" badges.

Pictures tell a thousand words. The first is what appears to be the most common, in white text. The second seems to only appear on GT-R's from the pictures I've seen, so either it was GT-R specific or only for very early models - I do not know. It is a bit harder to read with the black text. Later (1975 seems to pop into my head for some reason) the next style came in. This style also appeared in Australia with late-model 240K's except reading "DATSUN" instead.

Does anybody have comments, additional info, or corrections?

isnt the "Skyline" badge from C210 similar to the 240K ones?

In a word... No. ;)

The C210 uses all upper case letters on it's rear quarter badge, the C210 is when the Skylines cars started getting square (as in very squared angles) and as such, so did the logos/badges.

The only possible addition I can think of at the moment would be that I would imagine the completely different type would have come about at the advent of the C111 which from what I can tell is either late 1975 or early 1976.

Unfortunately all my pictures are on my brother's computer and the network is being a right spaz. So I'm unable to confirm or deny or add to your thoughts in regards to the possiblity of the black one being GT-R only.

Interestingly Lachlan, despite my car being such a late build, it still displays the earliest style badges, except obviously reading 'Datsun' instead of 'Skyline.' That last style you mentioned is indeed from the later cars though...

Well done Rob!

Yes, the C210 badges are very similar. I think perhaps only the export market "DATSUN" badges were all upper-case? Here is the C110 "Skyline" badge for comparison.

What date was your car produced Tom? I was actually thinking of your car while posting that! Maybe yours was one of the "crossover" cars (Nissan has been known to produce a few of these in the transition between models to use up all inventory).
