Post 1974 280C trans fluid type ?

I'm having a hard time figuring out which brand/type of automatic transmission fluid to use on my '74 280C , 110/114 . If I'm not being redundant ( kinda new at this ) , it's a straight 6 , gas .

I've received differing answers , any knowledgeable answers out there ?

Please .

Thanks , Nick

Castrol Multivehicle ATF is a good choice.

Probably good. Last time I used Mobil D/M because it was in stock. Good for most cars that specced DExtron II, II, etc
