IRS is preferred in a baja for the following:

Aftermarket support in longer arms, axles, cv's etc....
Can be lifted higher without camber issues; camber issues can result in being turtled (upside down) when sliding around corners.

Swing axle is preferred in a drag car, (less parts to fail) or a low rider (for the camber look). / \.

A lot of 68's were autosticks also.

BTW good job Jacque.

My 66 is likewise. Heavily modified by Bugzylla Fabrication.

And 68's could be either way, I believe the autosticks were IRS and manuals were swing. (but it has been awhile and could be very wrong)
