That looks to me like a book about the DOHC version of the ford indy/grand Prix motor. It was, I beleive, based (losely) on the small block (as far as bore spacing, etc). It's not FE related, but probabally a pretty interesting book. Those engines won a LOT of races, even into the 80's in F-1 and/or Indy cars. I beleive after Ford sold the design it was sold to cosworth, which was bought by GM, so, GM's forrays into indy had Ford motors for a bit. This is from a way back in my brain, so, I con't recall too many details.
As for the history of the engine, it started out as a SOHC engine, and after a few years they redid it as a DOHC. All through it's history it won alot of races, including it's forst or second Indy 500, I can't recall. In any case, those, along with the Offenhouser engines are some of the winningest engines ever. An interesting find.
Disclaimer: I'm pretty sure everyhitng I said was right, but, it's all form a few years back, there's alot of Calculus, Numerical Methods, and Dynamics of Rigid bodies inbetween now and then, so, no warranty
