Bringing W108 250S home..first things to check for?

While I may be getting to know the W123s pretty well, I do not know the W108s. Tomorrow I may be finially driving the 1968 250S home and was wondering what fluids and such I should be checking first. What ATF oil do these call for? Recommended motor oil? Thanks vintage lovers..

Oil - Castrol makes a high mileage oil that I hear good things about all the time. Look for something with zinc additives too, for the older ones. I recommend not using synthetic, as the molecules are smaller than regular oil, and tend to seep past the seals.
