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.

  • "Embedded with dirt" Yeah , because you dragged a dirt filled cloth across the relatively dry paint with nothing other then foam as the lubrication, and no agitation at all of the dirt was honestly a bizarre move on your part.

  • 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

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.

That didn't seem very thought out to me. I know they want to "get a feel for it", but it's not like it's not just a dirty car?
