There were no factory option roof racks that I know of, but there 
certainly were dealer installed options. Up thru about 71 they look 
like the one you described. Later they changed slightly by adding 
cross straps that tied the roof slats together. I believe this was 
mainly to reduce installation time, as this meant that only the outer 
2 slats were actually screwed to the roof. On the plus side, this 
also greatly reduced the number of holes drilled in the roof.

Different styles were most likely available in different markets since 
the local importer chose what to make available. I have a 
completely different european square rack that actually sits in the 
rain gutters and is welded, galvanized steel.

There are probably as many different versions of dealer racks as 
there were markets, and then aftermarket racks were also popular 
in some places.
