As it was said before, Redline MTL GL-4. Most likely will need 17mm Allen wrench. Ensure fill plug loosen before drain plug is removed.
It is good idea to change differential fluid while you are under the car. I believe need 12mm Allen wrench.

In the picture it says "your vehicle requires 1.5Q" of the trans fluid.  Is that correct?

It makes a difference what year your gearbox was made. If it is an early 4 speed ( usually pre 1972) it is a Porsche style Synchro box and you need to be very careful about the type of oil you use. As stated before NO HYPOID GEAR OIL!!!! or the Synchros will not work (for long)  If it is a later 4 speed (72 on) then MTL, GL4 or GL5 is just fine.  If it is a OD 5 speed the GL4-5 and MTL works great.  If for some reason you have a early Close Ratio 5 speed the requirements are the same as the early 4 speed, be careful those synchros are really expensive!
