Chip's Auto Transport/Kevin Wallace Jr.

February 2023

When it was established in 1971, Chip's Auto Transport focused on repair work and towing for MA State & local police. Their original location was in Needham, MA, but they eventually switched gears from towing to transporting vehicles nationwide.

Today this family-owned business is run by Kevin Wallace, Lee Wallace, and Kevin Wallace Jr. (seen in our photos) and they operate out of their state of the art facility in Foxboro, MA. The Chip's fleet is made up of 10 trucks, ranging from the typical flatbed tow truck to their 10 car stingers. They haul all types of cars & specialty vehicles out West to California & Arizona with their fleet of trucks.

The pride of the fleet is this 2006 Peterbilt 379, that they purchased out of CA in 2020. The truck has a 63" sleeper and plenty of custom touches from the front bumper to the full fenders over the rears! Power comes from an Acert C-15 CAT 550HP engine that's paired up with a 13 speed. Kevin Wallace Jr., seen in our photos, says this polished Pete runs 90% of the time around the Northeast, but it stretches its legs making trips down & back to Florida hauling cars for the "snowbirds".

Kevin Jr. says he has fond memories of going on the road with Kevin Sr. to pick up vehicles as well as working in the shop alongside his dad as a little boy. He says those early experiences made him want to work for the family business, and he's been doing just that full time for the past 13 years. One thing's for sure, the cars arrive in Peterbilt style when they arrive courtesy of Chip's Auto Transport behind this sharp looking 2006 379!

February definitely starts off in style with Chip's Auto Transport & their 2006 Peterbilt shining bright as our Working Show Truck of the Month!
