On all my new-to-me old cars I drained and refilled the transmission fluid immediately, no matter what. And after 200 miles again if not clean red.

I decided to stop making a mess on my driveway and changed the transmission pan with one that has a drain plug... Changed the pan on my Explorer too. Ford did that only for their "racing" products... hate them for that.
