Well I would take a guess and say it is not freon or r12 it is most likely r134a

You can get a fillup thing from the parts store with a gauge and it will tell you when to stop.

just did it today on a buddies 90 with the 460ci. we went to pep boys today and as dereku said we got a can of r134a refrigerant with a gauge. we filled it and it the ac got cool, not cold just cool for about 10 minutes, after that it went right back to hot. anyone know what it could be?
