Hello gentleman,
I'm a newbie and have had my 64' for a couple years and along this topic mine has 3 windows behind the cab for a total of four on each side. She also seems a bit longer than others. I was told by the previous owner she was dubbed a carryall and was a Crummie. I can find no literature about crummies do any of you have any or even some hearsay I could indulge?

Here is a copy of the 1964 Chevrolet Truck Specifications Manual [gmheritagecenter.com]

Scroll down to Suburban specifications/models.
It looks like there was one length for all Suburban models.

If you have a panel truck, maybe side windows were added?
Panel Trucks were available in different lengths.

What is the wheelbase-length of your truck?

Here is this new member's first post. He has a long wheel-base Panel Truck. It looks like side windows have been installed.

My guess is that these windows were not a GM/Chevrolet factory option (RPO).

That is a cool and unique truck. Probably has quite a history too.

Wheelbase is 133" she's titled as a suburban. It was hear say, however it was mentioned to me that crummies might have been built on ambulance chassis but I hadn't had time yet to try and support or dispute that with facts yet. Honestly I thought someone on here might look at her and say oh ya I know what that is!

“she's titled as a suburban”
What is the vehicle code on your title/registration?
What is the code on your vehicle's ID plate?

I’ll look in the 1964 Chevrolet Truck Silver Book Dealer Special Equipment Album for 1-ton Chevrolet Truck “conversions” (if I can find it).

added later: there are no company listed in the Silver Book for installing non-sliding-glass side windows in 1964 Panel.

However, non-sliding glass could have been easily installed by a dealer or by a vehicle glass company, or by an owner/friend/relatrive.
