I can't imagine there being any decent statistics for assists for World Cups in the 60s and earlier, so I'll rule out Garrincha on lack of evidence and go with Paolo Rossi. Think he had a handful of assists in '78.

EDIT - think Ronaldo had a bunch in 98 also, so he could be in contention.

Apparently, Pele had 6 assists in 1970 which was the most in that tournament...and I think this was only equaled by Messi. But some say Pele had 7 assists in that WC, so...

You asked for the 'only' player, but what about Ronaldo?

Champion of a World cup - 1994, 2002
Topscorer of a World cup - 2002
Top assistant of a World cup - 3 assists in 1998, can't find anyone else who had more than 3
Best player of a world cup - 1998

Plus, I don't see any credible statistics to support Garrincha having the most assists at a World Cup (though likely as it may be), nor was there any official recognition for the best player at a World Cup in those days.

So I think you might have the wrong answer to your own question...
