Dang it, I was wrong, 1969Nova has it. It was a 322 Nailhead and I thought being the 364 replaced teh 322 in Buicks in 1957, I figured that was as far as the Chevy used them. But they continued using the 322 up until 1959. It was called a "Torque Master".

Brian

You have the floor 1969NOVA!

first flex fuel

The first commercial flexible fuel vehicle was the Ford Model T, produced from 1908 through 1927. It was fitted with a carburetor with adjustable jetting, allowing use of gasoline or ethanol, or a combination of both.

You guys had me on the chevy truck engine. For some reason I seem to be good with old Henry and the model T. Oh god I must be getting old!

Give me a little while and I will come up with something.

2. Who builds it?
3. Where is the country of origin?
4. What manufacture and family of engine is used in it?

Close enough

It's actually the CCR and it has a 4.7 a bored or possibly stroked 4.6 Ford modular engine. The one that you chose has the engine built off of the modular design by a British company. Check this link:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koenigsegg_CCR
You are close enough so you now have the floor.
Good job

Buick Dynaflow was the first automatic transmission with a torque converter. I didn't even have to look that one up.
