I haven't seen a low temp one......
If your car is running hot or cold and the T-stat is funcioning correctly, you have some other problem.
Take the car to a quallified mechanic and have him check it.

Have you checked your radiator? 50-60 year old radiator core could hamper the water flow needed due to the deposits/sediments that have gathered on the inside over the years.....

How are you measuring the temperature? Did you bleed any air in the system? Have you experimented without a thermostat and measured the temp? Did a professional mechanic diagnose you need a different thermostat? The nice thing about cooling systems is they work all the same unless it is a VW Beatle. ANY mechanic will diagnose this in a heart beat. I doubt your thermostat is the answer. If it was, it wouldn't be so difficult finding another one that suits your temp range search.

That's not how a thermostat works. A cooler thermostat won't prevent overheating as temperatures get warmer. Thermostats are fully open by 95C or whatever: at engine temperatures above that they basically have no effect.

If your car is actually running too warm, you have some other issue besides the thermostat.
