Best Answer

The original refrigerant installed at the factory in 1973 was R12 (Freon). If it has not been converted to R134a, I suggest you convert it now, if it is leaking and needs repair. R12 is no longer in production and the dwindling supply is very expensive. Much cheaper to convert it to R134a.
