    Most likely a regular cab...

    For C&C there were alot of available wheelbases, especially for things like dump bodys/ car haulers etc

    that's a huge wheelbase. The suburban is 129 and the crew cab long beds are around 165-ish I believe.

    Could be a typo.

    Crewcabs for 73-91 were 164.5", which are looooong, especially with the overhang of the longbed.

    The newest stuff I have paperwork for is the 1990 NBS, and the longest WB then was ~159".

    Since it's C&C, could be anything ... maybe it had a box on it, who knows?

    Oh, the VIN would tell, but if you gotta contact the seller to get the VIN, you can ask what the cab is like ;)

    It could easily be 186, ive seen a few, usually with flat beds (like car haulers)
