```It's probably infinite, but a proof is probably beyond reach, I'm guessing.

The sequence is not in the OEIS.  Values through 10^5:

1, 121, 380, 506, 511, 3796, 5875, 6006, 8976, 9025, 9186, 10920, 12245, 12896,
14476, 14800, 15386, 22451, 23471, 32326, 35175, 38460, 39536, 40420, 41456,
43430, 44415, 59901, 60076, 61341, 74676, 76615, 76986, 82530, 87390, 99486
