1971 280S Transmission fluid change time

I am working on a 71 280S and plan on changing the transmission fluid this weekend. What type of fluid is recommended?
Are their any pitfalls to this procedure? I have changed fluid and filter on several domestic cars and trucks. Not sure if this is similar.
