There's a million ways to enhance and upres footage from specialized plug-ins to elaborate techniques with tons of layer duplicateds and effects. Without actually seeing the footage, nobody can advise specifically, but feel free to look into plug-ins like Instant HD as a start...

It would be nice to take a batch of old movies and process them all up to a set Width (height variable to maintain aspect ratio) and have the results output high quality. Later on I will compress for several delivery systems and bandwidths.
Now that After Effects has bicubic resampling for transformations like scaling, you may be able to get results that are the same or better in After Effects compared with third-party plug-ins like Instant HD.
