.
Lots to take into consideration with a baja.
Street or off road use?
Off road - rough stuff or just crusin' some trails and dirt roads?

Rough stuff - find one already built and drop the $$$$ to get it. Save $$$ in the long run.

Mild usage - 69 and newer has the better IRS rear suspension and limited travel ball joint front beam. Good setup for mild cruising around. Need to go to emissions - bummer.

66 and older - better link pin style front end, but not so good swing axle rear suspension. Doesn't have to go to emissions.

Best bet - 66 and older that has the IRS conversion already done. Best of both worlds suspension wise AND you don't have to go to emissions. (tough to find them this way, but you never know).
