Automatic questions

I have a 73 automatic that I bought a few months ago and I have a few questions:

How often do you service the automatic transmission? Is there a way to check the fluid level and fill it up from the engine bay?

Also, do you change transmission filter while you service it?

Best thing you can do is convert to a 4 or5 speed.... Not to depress you the autos were a POS when new.If it breaks do not fix the auto. 4 speeds are cheap and a conversion would be minimal $$$$$

I've got a '73 auto and I love it. it's got the original transmission with 140k on the clock and it still shifts like a boss. standard shifts are great, but the auto is still a lot of fun. The automatic 2002 is going the way of the dinosaur because everyone wants to convert them to 5 speeds. I plan on keeping mine auto, because it's freakin sweet.
