try something like this:

how far have you gotten in your attempts to recreate the look? what have you tried, and what are you having trouble with?

The color is just curves adjustments. Try this curves preset:

There is a certain wisdom to choosing to colour correct first and then reverse the process to get the colour casts that are desirable. Obviously depends upon the process or the original.

At the top-right corner of the curves dialog box, open the flyout menu and click "Load Curves Preset."
