What years did the C4 convertible have the luggage rack?

I like the luggage rack on the convertible C4. I did a search but can't seem to find out what years they were made on. It looks like only on the later 92+ models. Did they do it on earlier models?

According to my Black Book it was available from 1989 thru 1993.

Why is it easier to be a conservative than a liberal? Because it is easier to give a man the finger than a helping hand.

My 1987 Corvette Convertible has the factory installed Luggage Rack .
Its painted with about 20 - 30 % semi gloss Matte black paint.
Similar to old PPG DP90 Lead based Black Epoxy Primer when dried.

I have heard of only a few other 1987 C4 Convertibles with the factory installed luggage rack over last 5 years on Forums.
Very possible it was available in 1986 too.
Thought of removing the luggage rack in past but decided to leave it & found out it is a rare & desirable option on early C4's.

Its a real strong alloy extruded aluminum luggage rack.
I can push down very hard on the rear airfoil wing of luggage rack( 100lbs of downforce) & it does not deflect even a 1/4 inch, rear suspension starts to squat down.
