Abstract: We investigate von Neumann algebras generated by the real parts of generators of Toeplitz extensions of interpolated Cuntz algebras $\mathcal O_{\beta}$ on sub-Fock spaces. We show that some of them are isomorphic to interpolated free group factors $L(F_r)$. For example, in case of the golden number $\beta = \frac{1+\sqrt{5}}{2}$ the corresponding number $r$ is $\frac{3}{2}$.
