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

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!

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 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.

So why did they think it was a good idea to wipe the caked-on dirt with SEVERAL passes with the same cloth, when they already had planned to use a pressure washers on the car? 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?

My sister had a Datsun 280Z and a transmission shop who put a clutch in it was trying to bilk her out of more money. Dad dropped me off in her town and we got the 280 home and the new clutch was slipping terribly. I pulled the transmission back one cold January no heat and examined everything and everything was spec put everything back in and the same problem. So I pulled the transmission all the way out of the car and that's a big job and the rear suspension bolts come out to slide it back so driveshaft and everything will clear. I poured over everything slipped the trans out of the case and we went over everything. I put it together again and the same thing so I was at wits end a cold teenager crushed fingers hide missing cold soaked I walked out on the ranch lot where dad still had a Datsun 720 pickup, and I pulled the clutch cylinder and brought it over but the holes didn't quite line up but I pulled the operating rod out of it and then the operating rod out of the 280z and right away the mystery was solved as the operating rod on her car had been roughly cut too long with a hot saw out of bar stock and the other end they had carefully ground a radius. It was very apparent it was deliberate and I had spent 14 hour days and a week to figure it out and cutting the rod the same length as the pickup it worked like a champ. A dishonest mechanic can cause you headaches, and often recourse is unattainable, but my Grandparents still farmed around the mechanics town and knew everyone. The mechanic had thought my sister was alone in that small city but after Grandma and Grandad informed the boys at the COOP, the dishonest mechanic quickly went out of business. lol
