Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My A/C is out.  The clutch is froze and I don't know about the compressor.  It is the original unit.  (The car is totally original)  I don't know if I should convert to 134 or try to keep it R12.  Will i need to replace much?  How original can I keep it looking.
