That's because there's no such type as (double-float 64).  Try this:

Welcome to Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.2-r9233M-RC1  (DarwinX8664)!
? (make-heap-ivector 10 'single-float)
#(0.0 3.2539062 0.0 3.2773437 1.835429E+29 4.5916347E-41 1.8354169E+29  
4.5916347E-41 1.8230012E+29 4.5916347E-41)
#<A Foreign Pointer #xB90DF58>
? (make-heap-ivector 10 'double-float)
#(1.0D-323 2.964394D-318 6.953251193885D-310 0.0D0 0.0D0 0.0D0 0.0D0  
0.0D0 0.0D0 -2.0000000000000013D0)
