I've got 225,000 on my 84 300cdt. Bought it w/150,000 on it and my driving is almost all highway at 80mph (200 m/day). It is simply remarkable what a filter/fluid change does. The fluid looks fine, the filter looks very clean and yet changing them (including draining the converter) results in a very marked difference in shifting and overall driveability. I do let off a bit at shift time on hard acceleration (on-ramps) to ease the strain and hopefully extend the life. Hope this doesn't jinx me...
