Where is the Shimer Bus?

Larry Blomberg of Adelaide, Australia is looking for information about the missing Flxible (yes, that is spelled correctly) Starliner Coach that once belonged to Shimer College

According to Blomberg, the buses are very rare: only 73 were made. One (No 30926) belonged to B.B. King and was delivered to him on the May 3, 1958. It was subsequently stolen in 1966.

The Shimer bus (No.30951) was delivered on June 26, 1957. Nothing more is known. If anyone has any information about the bus (how long it was owned, to whom it was sold, what it was used for), please contact
