You have drive a car an average of 70 miles every day for 40 years to hit a million miles.  A hell of a lot of driving.

Mileage could be right.  They have replaced the odometer.  Those don't break before 100k, and they have had several trannys installed.  You should get at least 100k out of a tranny.

Many of these odometers gernanded well before 100k, let along a million miles. Look at the rest of the car - no way the sterring wheel and seat have 1,000,000 miles.
Many of the early lockup transmissions failed and failed repeatedly. No idea why, but I bought a very clean t t-top Mirada in the 90's with 85k on it and the 6th transmission. They finally put a non-lockup 727 in after the other lockup ones failed  but they were so disappoined int he car they didn't keep it.
A lady I worked with decades ago her Chrysler odometer die at 70k, I had one fail at less than 2 k miles. Yes, less than 2000 miles. Going own the highway and lots of clacking noise, then the speedometer kept going and the odometer stopped.
