First Wash in 44 years! Barn Find Datsun 280z with only 350 Original Miles
This is the rarest Datsun 280z Barn find ever recorded (as I've been told) with only 350 original miles! It was left in a barn near Hershey Pennsylvania before its first wash in 44 years! You'd expect this to be a complete detailing disaster because it was left untouched for so long...but the paint was in good condition despite being covered in filth and disgusting grime. In this barn find, we use AMMO Frothe to remove the first layer of dust and dirt to ensure the rubber seals did not leak if we power washed. Once confident, we power washed the paint, then compounded and polished with a Rupes polisher during our paint restoration. The Datsun 280z has since won several awards at Zcon and more information can be found at

    Only thing left to do now is take it to the freedom factory to do some hot laps then blow the tires off it on the burn out pad. Hell yeah brother.

    You should inform Nissan HQ or their factory museum in Japan about this car. They would definately be interested in buying it back from you and exibiting it in their museum.

    After you put the bumpers back on I realized that the car looked awesome without them. If that front was all grill instead of having a foot of bumper sticking off of it imagine how cool it would be. Damn safety regulations.

    • AMMO NYC
      AMMO NYC

      Steam has it's place but there are other options that are better. steam has it's specific uses but washing an entire car with just steam is not as safe as free flowing water or a hoseless rinse system like AMMO Frothe.

    That car is got to be definitely one of a kind my first car was a 1979 Datsun 280ZX I would estimate it to be worth for a serious collector somewhere around 100 grand But I think it’s the wrong car for me because it’s just too original and I wouldn’t want to modify in anyway I would want some thing that I wouldn’t not feel bad About putting a bigger turbo on

    I really hate how he used towel to wiped the dust of the car without clean off the dust by water first! this is unacceptable!

  • scottsheck

    Common sense would tell me to blow off the dirt first, then rinse with water, then use a towel. Using the towel first, then a pressure was sure, and then a orbital buffer made me cringe. Three things I would never do.

    How is scraping dirt across the paint with a microfiber cloth safer than using water? Since when do you go right to polishing paint that you yourselves said had dirt embedded? Shouldn't you clay bar? I'm not the professional here but this doesn't look right.

    I’d just put it back in the garage for the next 44 years now isn’t the time to start putting a bunch of miles on it.

    I don’t get it - I have a 1982 Porsche 944 that sat quite some time...until I started “using” it but also cleaning it frequently. Neither was I ever afraid of power washing it nor are any of the stickers broken / ever became too wet. Still has all original factory stickers and warning labels... Weird explanation.

    As a teenager I worked in a Datsun showroom in 1976, in Glasgow Scotland. It was my job to wash these cars and prepare them for the showroom. When they arrived from the manufacturer they had a coating of wax which we had to remove then polish the car. I remember this model well.
