Default Fluid change intervals

I would like to know when to change the transmission fluid as well as cooling fluid in my 60 series engine/transmission? Should it be done by mileage as the transmission fluid still looks and smells like new?

Also I keep testing the cooling fluid with the test strips and it show to be fine, even though the fluid has not been changed for 10 years, same with tranny. Mileage about 50k miles since last change.

I would suggest a tranny filter & fluid change.
I drain about 1/3 of the coolant to work or perform maintenance on the cooling system about every two to three years.
