Well, I haven't found a vining crookneck yet, but just found a climbing zucchini from Pennard Plants in the U.K.  I've done a quick Google search and it is available from a lot of English seedhouses, but not in North America that I could see.

Here is its description:  Courgette , Climbing , Black Forest 'Patio' Cucurbita pepo , A new RARE (F1) hybrid with a unique climbing habit, Courgette 'Black Forest' makes a great space saving variety for growing in containers on the patio. The long stems will need tying onto a trellis or netting to gently train them upwards. Courgette Black Forest will produce heavy yields of dark green, smooth, cylindrical 15cm (6) courgettes if picked regularly throughout the summer. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 60cm (24"). Best Container Grown as it favours a very rich, well-drained soil. ,
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
cool mediterranean climate  warm dry summers, mild wet winters,  70 cm rain,   sandy soil

Here is my latest update on the vining yellow crookneck project. This year, I grew out some seeds from @Esoteric Agriculture from his 2019 grow out. So far, I have obe promising seed fruit. I plan on setting aside some space next year for my F1 squash seeds as well. Below is a link to a video update on the project on Bitchute. I look forward to the next video update on the project from Esoteric Agriculture.

I'm thinking this might be what you're looking for, but I can't tell if it's pepo until (if) I get it to mature seeds. The immature fruit are definitely crookneck. I got it in a mixed batch of random squash seeds last spring so I have no idea what it's called.
