First Generation Nissan Maxima The 1984 Nissan Maxima or Datsun Model 910 Series as it is refered to in the factory service manual was the last year for the Maxima to carry the Datsun name plate. 1984 was also the last year for the First Generation Maxima. The 1984 Maxima model year wore the Datsun badge alongside the Nissan name that was to replace it. Even though it is not shown in the pictures, the right side of the trunk carries the "NISSAN MAXIMA" badging. Standard factory floor mats for the 1984 model year Maxima were also badged with the Datsun name plate.Hopefully this clarifies why the car carries the Datsun badge. It is the way Nissan manufactured them from the factory for the '84 model year. This car is original factory badging. Model Year: 1984Miles: 190,843This car is stock except for the front fog lights. Car is original factory paint and original factory interior. My Dad is the current owner of the car. He would have junked this car by now if it wasn't for all my hard work to keep it so shinny for him over the years.
