I own a 1977 446 that I'd like to restore in order to sell....

Looking for someone in the northeastern Metro Detroit area to fix her up....

Anyone with any recommendations?

Welcome. Now, let me get this straight. You are looking to hire someone ELSE to restore a '77 446 so you can sell it afterwards? Tax writeoff? lol. Seriously, an unmolested original tractor is worth more than a properly restored one if you count the restoration costs! VERY few people ever get back what they put into a tractor to restore it even if they did the work themselves.

Good point..... Maybe I will start with getting her cleaned up and running.... Still looking for someone in my neck of the wooed that has experience with these to do the work.
