I bet the autostick clutch discs do last a very long time due to being lightly loaded and other factors. I would like to thank you for the pictures that you have posted and the other tips that are very helpful. Another autostick is in my future. I do not know exactly when. I would prefer a 73-75 Super sedan with autostick. For someone anticipating a purchase some time in the future, it is a bit scary as the autosticks seem to me to be becoming more rare by the day. I can only assume that the swapping out of the autostick trans to a 4 speed manual is continuing. On thesamba.com there is not one autostick here in AZ. And this is 'heaven' for old cars due to the fact that they do not rust out here.
