Use the original "Type F" or the newer "Type FA".

Fluid level should be check when hot, idling in park. Often, wear has already occured in transmission and is now evident with new, clean fluid. The fluid acts as a cleaner and the act of changing the fluid cleans out sludge.

Usually the type of fluid is marked on the dipstick, if you look close you may find it there. Most ford vehicles 1975 and earlier used the F-TYPE fluid. It's always best to stick with the original manufacturer's suggested type. I've found it hard to find the F-TYPE in the bigger 5 quart containers lately. Wal-mart only carries it in quart containers around here. Prices have leaped on transmission fluid like everything else, so be prepared..
