Purchased by Devon General in March 1994 and originally numbered 1000 this was the first of a large number of similar dual door vehicles which replaced Ford Transits in Transit Holdings subsidiaries in Devon, Oxford and Portsmouth. The dual door configuration was developed to aid passenger comfort, loading and unloading whilst maintaining the flexibility of small capacity and size.
