There are two more important differnces to note: Most Baja Broncos have the top hinge of the tire carrier painted white, so it
matches the area of the body to which it is molded. On the Firestone Baja both hinges are orange. This could have been an early paint oversight or
simply a test to see if it looked okay with an orange hinge. Either way, we've never seen another Baja with an orange upper hinge, unless it had been
repainted incorrectly. All the orignal paint Bajas we have had and seen have had white upper hinges. The last detail is on the fender. If you look closely,
you'll see that the Baja fender decal is blue in the cactus field. Nearly every Baja Bronco decal we've seen has been Orange, White, and Blue, left to right.
On the Firestone Baja, the decal is Blue, White, Orange, left to right. We only know of one other Baja with these decals: Jim Creel's April '73 Baja Bronco.
Anyone else have the blue-on-the-left decals?
