    Unfortunately, GM didn't keep such extensive records. The only way I know of is to calculate statistically a ballpark figure using the CAC Tech Center info here:

    Corvette Action Center | Tech Center | Model Center

    and Model Center info here: Corvette Action Center | Model Center | C4 | 1996 Corvette | 1996 Corvette Production Numbers

    1996 Total production was 21,536 units
    Black total production was 3917 =18% of total (21,536)

    Total convertibles produced was 4369
    CE LT4 convertibles produced was - 469 = 3900 non-CE convertibles were produced

    If you extrapolate 18% (percentage of Black Corvettes produced) of the 3900 non-CE LT4 convertibles
    you get 702.

    At least that's what I come up with. Someone may be able to get you closer to the ballpark.

    BTW -

    Does your 96 have the Performance Handling Package?
    1869 of 21,536 = 0.09 or 9% of the total production

    If you multiply 702 x 0.09 it would be (approximately) 63 1996 Black LT4 convertibles with RPO Z51, the Performance Handling Package.

    Anyway, it's still just an estimate.
