I'm looking at 71 BOSS 351's, where do I find the vin numbers? Are they stamped into the block like the 70? On the front fenders? What are the part numbers I need to look for? Any other fundamental characteristic's that should be noted? Thanks!!

All the '71 Boss 351's are an R engine code in the vin, and were only built in Dearborn plant.  The critical data/stampings are all in the same basic places as a '70 Boss 302.  If you ignore the obvious differences in sheetmetal, the basic design and construction is very similar to the '70 models.  In fact, they may have more in common with a '70, than a '70 does with a '69.
