I feel for you! Same thing happened to me. Who doesn't tie down someones airplane when they park it on the ramp?!
So sorry to hear this Chris.
Dammit that breaks my heart. was this the Stinson that used to live at Benton airport in PA?
Dammit! That really sucks. Rudders are getting hard to find, too. Good luck sir.
Who ever pulled it out and not properly secured it is responsible for damages.
I sent this info to some pilot friends in Denver. I’ll let you know what I hear back.
So sorry to hear

Sorry that happened Call me if you need parts. Earl Allen. 530 368 2064.
Chris MacGlover, I am so sorry to hear this. Don’t let them total it. Hopefully you have it insured for a good value as their carrier will probably try to weasel out of fixing it if you have it underinsured. Hoping it all works out for you.
I will bet the fuselage is good, obviously a new rudder and possibly a new vert stab. These are tough airplanes!
Insurance should get you all new parts from Univair
Very sorry about what happened to the ole girl hope everything works out well for you
Repairable, I would do structural inspection at the tail skid attach fittings. Probably new rudder.
I have the parts
Wow, that has to be frustrating! Sorry to hear about that!
I can't see you having a damaged fues. I rebuilt and worked on a couple. They are rough tough airframes
I have a factory new vertical stab still in shipping box from Stinson factory in perfect condition, if you need one
