Does anyone know how many RHD ragtops there are, specifically 1960 ones?

I assume for 1960 cars I should be looking at 1959 production figures? So this means that there were 575,407 total cars built in 1959 (739443 in 1960) - according to the samba.

Havent found a breakdown of this figure as of yet.

There's no info available on how many of the production run were Ragtops.
