I guess we are talking here about the side windows in the rear of a TF Suburban...
My '57 Suburban has 1 sliding window, and the 3 others are fixed windows; I was also able to buy repro sliding windows weatherstrip for my TF Suburban.
So, Bartamos, when you say "no", do you mean it was not an option and they all had sliding windows?

yes, However, what Canada may or may not have done, if any were built in Canada, I have no clue.
Also there were possibly some "special" windows built on trucks like panels,1T school bus, rescue units I believe. Probably done at an aftermarket shop.
The next era up, which is 60-66, offered a combination of solid and sliding, starting in 63? with the rear one offered as solid. That's where you get the weather strip to go solid on TF. There's a tip on that in tip section. There are local vendors, paint supplies, glass setters, that offer the necessary rubber cross section in bulk, not kit.
See my 56GMC link for all four solid.
