as a side note to this thread suburbans originally had 2 doors,
they went to 3 doors in the 60s and stayed that way for many yrs.
i don't think it was until the late 80s or early 90s that they went to current 4 door configuration

this is new build of a 57 5700 crew cab ''big bertha'' the guy did an excellent job finishing this
a build thread is located over on the 67-72chevytrucks.com forum
he made it to pull his 5th wheel camper in style

That is a very nice looking truck and looks original unlike most of the "Phantom" builds back in the eighties when they were so popular.

Here ya go
I had read about a coach company that made all sorts of renditions based on Chevy trucks, crew cabs, airport limos, etc. I thought I saved the link, but I can't find it now.
That one is a three door, here's a link;

|poncho62||Makes you wonder if there is a 2nd door on the other side.....Notice how short the box ix.|

|ogre||chevy and gmc never made those, but a lot of military and utility companies would buy them from custom coach fabricators for hauling crews around|

Possibly built for NAPCO for utility companies for remote power line work. Seems most of the 4X4 trucks of that era were called NAPCO.
Cool old truck..

|CrashFarmer2||This one appears to be a 2 door. I saw a picture once of a late 60's Chevy that looked like the same configuration as this one. It seems like the story that went with that one was that Chevy built some of those.|

They were built for the military and the railroads. no two doors tho. There was a bone yard north of Imlay City, Mi. That had several badged C&O railway.
I had a 57 Binder, same configuration. Came from USAF base in Texas.
