After the demise of A.J.S, the five Stevens brothers; Harry, George, Joe, Jack and Billie formed a new company "Stevens Brothers (Wolverhampton) Ltd" in 1932 to design and develop the "Stevens Light Commercial Vehicle". 

Based on a prototype built in 1921 it was a three wheeler with two wheels at the front and one at the rear. The van used motorcycle technology with the steering wheel carried on heavy duty motorcycle forks. 

The vehicles sold quite well and an improved version was launched in 1935 which sold for £93. 9s. 0d. It was also available as an open truck. 

Production continued until late 1936 by which time sales had declined as customers turned to four wheel models. Only about 500 Stevens vans were built of which few are known to have survived.
