Where would I go to get the rear cap updated to a more modern look? Also what would the price be? Under or over $1000?

What's it made of? If it's fibreglass you could create any look you wanted with a bit of foam, 'glass and resin. I built front and rear caps from scratch to accommodate the roof-raise on my bus, and definitely spent a lot less than $1000 (fair amount of work though).

Here's the rear cap (with openings for lights etc)

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

R&M Fiberglass makes some of the popularly used roof caps:

Or, roll your own like Jeremy did.
