No one really knows for sure.

US car totals were kept as a percentage vs. an actual count while no record was kept of cars built for Canada or export.

Rumors of a Canadian list persist though......

I believe they were offered in three trim levels:
Barracuda
Gran Coupe
'Cuda

I seem to recall the number of Gran Coupe convertibles was 590-something, but that is a number from a LONG AGO memory..........AND, I don't know the source of that number.

the most accurate numbers available are in GG's "white book":

1970 Plymouth E-body convertibles:
BH27 - * 1554 total shipped * Barracuda ~ 1387 for US (Y05) and ~ 167 for CANADA (Y07) & EXPORT (Y09)
BP27 - * 596 total shipped * Barracuda Gran Coupe ~ 547 for US (Y05) and ~ 49 for CANADA (Y07) & EXPORT (Y09)
BS27 - * 635 total shipped * 'Cuda ~ 548 for US (Y05) and ~ 87 for CANADA (Y07) & EXPORT (Y09)

2785 total shipped

I guess my memory isn't all that bad (at least for trivial things).
