Your temperature behavoiur sounds fine to me, I drive my 73 2.4E daily in traffic and 180 is 'warmed up' but 200-220 normal for driving in traffic, It sounds high but you have to remember 212 is 100C and most modern watercooled cars run their oil at 90C (194F) so for an air/oil cooled engine its fine, Hot would be prolonged periods over 220.

When I'm open road cruising the range is 190-210 depending on how fast i'm going
