4-dr Suburbans showed up in 73
67-72 Suburbans had 3 doors-----2 on the passenger side, one on the driver.

ogre 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

MARTINSR 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;

The cab is certainly long enough to accommodate another door.

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

Too Many Projects 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.

BOBCRMAN@aol.com 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.
