1966 Pontiac GTO owned by Jerry Cove of Hillside, New Jersey. Jerry is the son of East Coast customizer Les Cove, and the GTO was restyled by Jerry and his dad at Les Cove's Custom Body Shop in the 1960s. Painted blue, the chopped GTO featured Thunderbird taillights, Buick Riviera headlights, and a bumperless design. The front fenders featured air scoops and pinstriping. They shaved the doors for handles before they wrapped up the style with dual spotlights, chrome reverse wheels, and a white leather interior.[1]
