Hi Joe;
Since I HAD (sold) a beautiful Original color Stearman Brochure for the C3Rs and the 4C and 4E Speedmails, with color paintings, that included NC666K and NC667K, I looked them up in the Aerofiles list, and also saw these:
663K Stearman 4-E, 4005
664K Stearman 4-E, 4004
665K Stearman 4-E, 4003 - > 4-C
666K Stearman 4-E, 4006 - > 4-C
667K Stearman 4-E, 4007
Brochure clearly shows 667K Junior Speedmail as Wright J6-9/300 and
666K as P&W Wasp 400hp

Note:
T.A.T. (Texas Air Transport) F
flew the first ever International Mail to Mexico City in one, on Oct 1st, and was so impressed with it, that they immediately ordered another one, from the Tulsa, OK dealer.
