It all depends on how old you want it to look. For my film which I shot to look like an old 1920's silent movie I used expired film stock. This gave me an instant natural grainy look instead of attempting to create th look in post. However I strongly advise you to run tests on the stock before shooting to gurantee that the film is not badly damaged.

The 7285 Ektachrome should work well. If you want it to look like old family films, mount a big tungsten light on your camera and shoot only with existing surrounding light (just like they did for home movies). It might also be helpful to set your 16mm speed selection to 18 ro 16fps to enhance the "look".
