Piedmont Airlines said it had ordered six Boeing 767-200 extended-range wide-body aircraft and had secured an option on another six. The value of the order, with delivery expected to begin in May 1987, was not disclosed. The new Boeing is a medium- to long-range wide body that seats 220 passengers.
Yes, they did. The integration of the Peidmont fleet didn't take place until mid/late 1990. Some of the outstanding orders went directly to US after the merger. They were designated 767-2B7ER's rather than 201ER's.

Quoting MSYtristar (Reply 2): The took the 762ER's for the CLT-LGW service. Not sure if they had 6 or not, but that seems like a reasonable figure, because they flew some on transcons as well.
Yes, the 6 Piedmont 762s were delivered between May 1987 and May 1988 and were originally registered N603P, 604P, 607P, 608P, 614P, 617P. After the merger with US they were re-registered consecutively N645US through N650US.
