I need to get the older GILLETTE'S restored. Anyone got any recommendations?

Can't give you any recommendations, but they will look nice once restored.

I would start with a good cleaning using scrubbing bubbles so you see what's hiding under the grime. Looks like a great haul. I really like that Paul Revere Handle injector.

When I was little, we just thought the BUTTERKNIFE RAZOR was the coolest thing. Still is, in my book.

I'll second that - after a good cleaning you might decide you don't need to get them restored even.

Congratulations! Clean them up and post some more pics when you are done!

In terms of restoration, I haven't any first hand experience. Razor Emporium (member here) offers a restoration service.

Call them and ask for a quote, don't email. Ask for Dale.
I used them on my Fatboy they have done a bunch of razors over at B&B and The Shave Den.

I use Scrubbing Bubbles and toothbrush to clean old razors, with great results.

The '67 Gillette shaves divinely. Puts my two KRONA's to shame. Shaved with ith this morning.

    Dropped them into my brass tumbler for about 12 hours.

Another view.
