First Wash in 44 years! Barn Find Datsun 280z with only 350 Original Miles

7 878 353 Näkymät

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

  • So....dude buys a brand new car, bumper has a dent, gets the replacement bumper then....just...stops and never drivers it because of money issues? Ummm....I'm calling bs. Sorry. Come up with a better back story. I realize that after 3+ yrs of uploads and with 1.64M subs to pacify it might get hard to come up with original material, but c'mon man. Someone buys a new car and never drives it because he doesn't have the money to, what, put the radio in it that he wants?

  • My parents owned the 240z when I was a little kid, it was the same blue color. I wish they could have kept it cause they loved that car, but with me getting bigger, it was time to upgrade to a family car. I remember traveling from Missouri to Wyoming on my mom’s lap the whole way before they traded it in.

  • NOOOOOOO!!! It's a Datsun. They used the CHEAPEST metal they could find to make them, which is why they all rusted away within a decade. The only reason that one still exists is because it hasn't been near water. As soon as you washed it you signed it's death sentence, it'll be a pile of rust in under 10 years, under 5 if you ever drive it in the rain. :'(

    リバイアライアンリバイアライアン6 päivää sitten
    • no one call them Devil Z, it's simply a Fairlady Z. The name Devil Z is from the manga Wangan Midnight. Actually in the manga, he had a 240Z S30 chassis with aero kit and fender flares. Has for the engine, it's L28E 2.8l engine from a 280Z that was bored & stroked into a 3.0L , with a twin turbo setup and triple carburators. Mid Night Racers were racing the ABR S130Z that had a similar setup, which was commong in these years, mid to late 70's and really early 80's.
