Power steering can use Dexron VI. You probably can't find Dexron III in stores anymore, that's just what was around at the time. Higher-number Dexron numbers are compatible with lower number ones.

The rule is:

Lower number Dexron components are compatible with higher-number Dexron fluid.
Higher number Dexron components are not compatible with lower-number Dexron fluid.
