In 1929 the James Cycle Company launched the James Handy van. This was a 5 cwt van based around the James motorcycle using its 247cc engine.  The vehicle was continually updated and in 1933 the James “Samson” Handy van was introduced powered by an air-cooled, v-twin  1,096cc engine. The Samson had an aluminium body and a new welded steel frame chassis. The rear section of the body gave a loading area of 12 cwt and it also featured dual petrol tanks with one acting as a reserve tank whilst the other was in use.  The Samson Handyvan came in two body types; the enclosed Van body and the open Truck type body. The company ceased production in 1939.
