i put some ATF to refill the system and, the ATF has not the same density that the liquid inside , the red colored ATF stay at the highest portion of the circuit.
so i think that the " body by fischer 67 book" say wright:  it was original brake fluid !!!!

The 1969 Fisher Body Service Manual says to use ATF.
