What can Danny's car be?

MMDE: This car can be Ultramatic, Systematic, Hyyyydromatic

Current: This car can be Systematic, Hydromatic, Ultramatic 

Grease has been staged as a musical many times since its 1978 release, and a few of them filmed. Watching the original today, in the famous garage scene leading up to the "Greased Lighting" song, Danny proclaims "This car is systematic....hydromatic....ultramatic", yet many claim he swapped them around and stretched out they "hydromatic" with an extaggerated raised tone in the middle.

There is plenty of proof of this  where presumably all the different productions collectively "misremembered" the original. Or did it change after they produced theirs?

Best selling album

Some claim the video is different from the soundtrack, yet apparently the soundtrack came from the movie..

Why this car is automatic
It's systematic
It's hydromatic
Why it's greased lightnin'!
(Grease lightnin'!)

The soundtrack from Grease ended 1978 as the second best selling album of the year in the US ... behind John Travolta's other hit, Saturday Night Fever.
