The original Ford intervals were every 40,000km for major services. That included oil & filter ( engine ), brake fluid, coolant ( or every 2 yrs ), s/plugs, air filter, and repack front wheel bearings.
I think the fuel filter was every 80K or 100K.......but once a year is better.
Auto service as required, more so if taxi or door to door delivery.
Doing the diff every 40K wouldn't hurt either ( not mentioned ).

If they are squealing, or have cracks in them, replace them.
If the tranny fluid is black, it will need a flush.
