Hi, I have a 1974 Swiss Frid bought it 4 1/2 years ago from Belgium. Although I love my little Fridolin but am thinking of selling it if I buy a house at auction as its a wreck and need the money to do the work. How much do they go for these days?

Hard to say without knowing the condition.
There was one in the USA recently that was listed for $25000 or best offer recently. I don't know the actual sales price. It was pretty nice but maybe not as nice as yours. It was lowered with lots of new parts and running a standard 1600 engine.

Are you talking over the metal frames or the rubber parts??
I think fridolin-IG can help you the most...

Greetings Wesley
