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


4 млн көрүүлөр862

    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 want to rebuild one of these, 240 or 280z, I really do. Well, to tell the truth I want to rebuild a car and modernize everything: the engine, the dash, keeping the stick-shift though. 😊 Any advice on looking for one?

    2. Dionisius Calvin Sutantyo

      I really like to watch barn find car i like the video

      Hhahahhaaj.... If you plan to con people atleast use ur brain. It's not a 44 yr old unwashed car 😝😝 not all people are stupid bro.

    6. Camilla Revsbech Sørensen

      Thats the Way to scratching up a car, and then try to fix own problems.

    7. Franklin A. García

      They did not turn the car on smhhhh 😱😱😱😱😱!!!💀💀💀💀

    8. K9 Man

      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?

    9. 351cleavland

      When you pulled that frothy mess of a towel across that dirty, dusty paint my whole family saw it and died!

      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

      so fooken sick of all the MFer commerials

      Sure, just pressure wash water straight into the vapor vent system? Power wash right into the 44 year old window seals? Who taught these guys to detail cars? Cringeworthy at the least.

    21. bambino100011

      So satisfying to see this car restored to its former glory! =)

      My dad bought the first Japanese car in the area, a Datsun 180B Coupé '73. It was a wonderful car, and the one I learned to drive in too. It served us without any trouble what so ever for 20 years and 450,000 kms. But of course, my dad REALLY wanted a Datsun 240Z. I just wonder what would happen if he stumbled on something like that blue 280Z... They did really great cars. My aunt had a 100A Cherry which was a very funny and also really good little thing, zooming around. Dad was told "you'll have no car left within two years". But the sceptics fell silent one after the other. I remember driving the 180 in -41°C and it could take it. It's just sad that they stopped making these "tough little guy-designs" where they tried to look a bit like US cars. They got much uglier and more boring in the 80's. I can but congratulate. That's really the barnfind of a lifetime. And a 280Z which is almost like new.... that's just something you dream of...

      How come we have cable tie invented 44 years ago??? I just saw one in engine!!!!

    48. Mohd Kamal Mohd Rathi

      Dear AMMO NYC ,May I know how much is the total cost of the restoration works?

    49. Brennon Mitchell

      Um... you realize your essentially just wiping dirt and sand across the paints surface? Why not rinse it off first. That’s the purpose of the bubbles, it lifts the dirt away from the paint so it can be rinsed off with water, not scrubbed into the paint with a microfiber towel.

    50. Bruce Glover

      Found a few myself. Not as nice,but close. Can build them with my eyes closed.

    53. Drew Currie

      Nice job, but as someone who owned 3 Z's (73 240 and 2 early 74 260's - I'm not fond of the fat 280 bumpers - the thin bumpers just look so much nicer on these cars.

      I had a 1969 Datsun 2000 Roadster, that was more fun to drive than you can believe. My mom had a 260Z and it was wicked fun to drive as well. I miss those types of sports cars, cars that my husband could easily work on.

    56. Joey Pavone

      Ridiculously impressive find and restore.

    57. 1234597114

      Yeah, the new owner loves the Z so much he’s flipping it.

      1. Cody Finchum

        Well Phil if you watched the episode the dude goes on and on about how much loved z some story about his wife father had one this that and the other well his buddy had a buddy who knew a guy who had one proably bought it dirt cheap off the dude and is now auction it off for 140k boy he really loved that z didnt he probably one of the worst written story I've seen coming from ammo ny

      2. Philip Nicholson

        He sold it at auction for only $140k. Gee, what an idiot. Now he can work on his writing.

      3. Cody Finchum

        Poor writing skills and id drive till the wheels fall off also probably gave next to nothing for it probably $1,500

      How do the tyres still have air?

    75. Charlie Brown

      I had a 1981 model,and lived that car. Bought it used with 125k miles on it, which was a lot for a car made in 1981; I bought it in 1992. The previous owner had taken great care of it, and had most of the maintenance records in a thick pile of papers. That ar was so solid, and so reliable that I have been sold on Japanese cars since then. Oh, and I drove the piss out of it. Did my own oil changes, and belt replacements, plugs, etc. The engine was packed in under the hood, but everything was still easily accessible. The plugs were right on top of the block on the in line 6. I ended up getting sideswiped by an 18 wheeler as he made a late lane change, and didn't see me in the turn lane next to him. The door, driver side quarter panel, and a tire and wheel were damaged, but it still drive as if nothing had happened. Truckers insurance company screwed me around, offered 1500 for a total loss,or 750,and I get to keep the car. Well, I needed a car to get to work, and couldn't afford a lawyer so I took the $750. Life is especially hard on a young man of little means, living on his own. If only my dad could have given me a "small" 20million dollar loan like Donald Trump. Anyway, life goes on.

      All the while I'm watching this, I'm wondering just how much a car like this would fetch. I can seriously imagine this car fetching WELL into the 6-figure range at an auto auction.

      God I love these cars, I bought a 1972 240Z back in 1975 and have regretted the day it left me.

    99. Logic Vang

      So you're telling me you couldn't hit the entire car lightly with the pressure washer UNTIL after you smeared all the grit around? What about testing the seals before everything else? That part was hella dumb. No matter how lubed up that surface became, 40 years of grit just got rubbed around.

    100. James David

      So did he auction it of or keep it. Im dying to hear it run too
