Just so we are all starting on the same page, can you define overheating? Is it puking coolant into the overflow tank and on the ground?

Or are you just seeing a higher reading on the temp gage than you are comfortable with?

Moving, ram air from under the car feeds the radiator. At idle, the electric fans. Is you fan kicking on? Does it then kick off after the engine cools down some?

Just trying to figure out what conditions you may have, and what may or may not be normal. These cars do normally run hot by design, and hotter than what a lot of "old car" enthusiasts are used to.
