Fixing degraded video is hard; when you see big time film restoration projects, they've gone through it by hand-- not perhaps frame by frame, but sequence by sequence. You'll have to go through and mark segments by hand, to a considerable degree.

The shops that do this use custom software mostly, but there's some stuff that you can give a try.

In the free/shareware category, there's some impressive stuff, but its still a lot of work. Davinci Resolve Lite, or Red Giant Colorista are both limited versions from pro video tools companies . . .
