Having just mentioned 4890VW, here it is. It may seem overkill to use three photographs to illustrate a batch of five vans, but this view has been included to show the rear chevrons. As the photograph of this van newly-delivered to Acton Works shows, the rear door was actually yellow, and had red chevrons applied, rather than vice-versa. London Buses had a preference for 'tail-gate' type (top-hinged) rear doors at the time and this may be why the Transporter was selected. These doors were available on the Ford Transit but not as a standard option. 4890VW was based at Edgware Bus Station, where it was photographed, and lasted for a shade over five years.
