Beechcraft C-12BP Huron

The pilot of this C-12 told me during its visit to Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport, Springfield, Illinois the afternoon of July 26, 2014, that the bird was a Beech C-12BP. He said it had a US Army interior, something of a rarity, compared with US Air Force and Navy.
I searched the Web for additional info about the “BP” and found nothing. Your contribution of additional info is welcome in “comments” or correspondence.
They had returned some US Army personnel to Springfield and were heading home. I began taking pictures as light rain began. Rain intensity increased to moderate as he taxied away from the tarmac and took off. Twenty minutes later it was back on the ramp here, blocked by inhospitable wx upstairs, so to speak. I was privileged to be permitted to tour the 12 on the ground as they waited for the precip to “get out of Dodge.”
