I have heard that Fridolins that were delivered to the Swiss Postal Service were equipped with 1300 engines. Can anyone tell me if these engines had the engine letter code F ?

My 1974 Swiss Post van still has the original motor....It is a twin port 1300. Does not start with 'F'.

I was at the OCTO show over the weekend and this Fridolin caught my eye. It had some very nice custom features.

Nice!

I've been meaning to ask a question about Fridolins...

If they are stock - Are they really loud inside?
Louder than a regular Bug or Bus?
And when you do a nice back seat like you did, do you add a layer of sound deadening?

Thanks, and yes pretty loud, hence we used Dynamat and felt under the carpet and the 'back seat' area.

Hereís the thing! Frids are only as loud as the noise around you outside cause you are always riding around with the doors open. Even in the rain and cold I drive with them open. I canít help it itís way to fun. They do have a bit of a canny sound but I have never once thought it as being a problem. Of all my cars Iíve never enjoyed one more. You could use a lizard skin paint to deaden the noise or dynamite like most but the floor is the same as a ghost so itís the body accustics thatís different and Iíd say itís a lot less than a bus to me personally. Less room for echo and the ribbing on the roof and fender indent May have helped with canning revireration. But when those door are open you canít keep out the world 😁
