Question Looking for dad's old bus

Hi all,
I know this is a long shot, but....
Since my husband I got our little bus, my dad has been wondering what ever happened to one that he converted back in the 70's. First of all I am not looking for it to buy it, just wanted to find out for dad (he is 8. It was a 1963 Thomas body full size school bus with a 6 cylinder GMC power plant. Dad sold it in 1976 to a couple in the San Jose CA area. At the time he sold it, it was only primered. The most distinguishing feature was a mural painted on the front where it used to say school bus. It had a little Mexican bandito on one side and a little senorita on the other with the bus name in the middle "La Cosa Grande" (the big thing). I am trying to find a picture of it and will post it if I do. If any one has any info, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you a head of time.
