R-12 availability

I have just bought a 1983 esprit S3 turbo. The A/C is out of order. The compressor doesn t work at all and there are leaks of gas from everyparts. I would like to rebuild it completly. It used to work with r12 gas which is no longer available. Is it possible as i m going to change every parts to rebuild it for the r134 gas? Will it work propertly?
Don't change from R-12! Your AC system was not designed for 134! Don't use any R12 substitutes (like "Freeze"), just GENUINE R12
R12 is plenty available on eBayin US, just expensive.
