Now that you mention it, I believe I've seen quite a few single wire holders in 
white as late as '68 or later. I have to admit that this never rose to any 
significant level of my consciousness. When you say early cars, how early 
do you need to go to get white double wire holders?

Even the double holders in black have been hard to find for many years. VW 
started selling only the triple holders decades ago. Even those are probably 
NLA now.

You can see these white wire holders in various photos from the documentation of the time.  White holders are tough to find these days, but as an engine appearance snob, I've been hunting them down and hoarding them for a while.
