71 Mach 1, Ran Air, 351c, 4c, but it's only a dream
I have been viewing this site and it has some great info. I am looking for some help with decoding this pucture:

Other info I know about it:

1971 Mach 1 w 351 Cleveland, 4v, Ram Air

I am thinking this should be a Q code?

The decoder Tim posted is a great decoder and should give you the info your looking for. If you have problems just post your VIN here and you'll get answers to things you didn't even know you asked!! :D

Welcome from Ohio

Most 71 4 V Clevelands were M codes

According to the Marti book there were some late 71's made with the Q code 351 CJ engine. There were

66 - 71 Q code 351 CJ 4 V automatic fastbacks

42 - 71 Q code 351 CJ 4 v 4 speed fastbacks

Welcome and post up at least the first 5 of that VIN. It will help a little.

You could also purchase a Marti report. It helps even more.

To elaborate a little more, I have a Picture of my dads 71 Mach 1 w factory Ram Air, 351c, 4v, automatic transmission. I will try again to post the picture. Also the picture has the hood latches, should be a true Ram Air. I am on a search for a similar, very similar car so I define toy want the correct code. Thanks for the help.

1971 M code would be desirable but definitely not rare.
