What type of glass should be used on a 60s AS windows?

How thick? Are there any possible upgraded types of glass that can be used? How much does it cost?

Andy. Thickness is 1/8 inch for the opening windows and 1/4 inch for the jalousy window.
You can use glass, Lexan plastic, or Acrylite AR-2 plastic.
The AR-2 plastic when scrubbed with steel wool, will not scratch.
Plexiglass will crack and craze when exposed to the sun, but it's cheap.
