C'est une Ford de mi47-1948 avec une calandre et un pare-choc modifiés.

Deluxe, I believe. But it is modified so it's kind of hard to tell.

Defintely a Ford, I believe a 1948.
This car is known as White Lightning, when it was painted red and had other modifications including clear hood and big wheels and fins it became known as Greased Lightning

This is one of three 1948 Ford Convertibles used in Grease. The first is the "junker" that Kiniki buys. This same '48 was used for background dressing in the film, Used Cars and a picture of it can be seen on this site. The '48 above was used to represent the same car after being rebuilt and the third '48 was the red one used in the dream dance sequence.

I remember sitting down one night to see the scene where this car raced against the black car with the flames. I didn't know if the white car winning was a good thing or a bad thing for the storyline of the film.

It pisses me off when Leo damages this car during the drag race.

Eddie Paul made two white Fords for the movie. No mention of any red ones there so Barris & Dean must've been responsible for the more radical job.

Matchbox's Star Cars die cast version of this back in 1997 was an embarrassment (almost all of the Star Cars were, not the least of which is because they obtrusively included the movie/show's logo somewhere on the casting - on the car's rear in this case), using a 1933 Willys hardtop to represent a 1948 Ford:

Hot Wheels' version is better:
