I used to work in a proprietary language (designed ~1976) that could perhaps be described as Modula (Pascal successor) meets a stripped down Ada. Before it was extended with object-oriented features (~1993), there were parts of our system that were OO-like, done manually.

First, there was the concept of an area: a data structure whose "base class" had to set its fixed size in bytes, but which could then be refined by "subclasses" that added their own data after the fields defined by the base class.

Second, we made extensive use of function pointers, which were sometimes grouped into some struct whose functions could then be "inherited" and "overridden" manually. These structs of function pointers were often registered in an array that was indexed by a type identifier, so you would see code like polymorphs[type].function(...).
