Sounds like the thermostat is sticking open, not allowing the car to reach operating temperature. This really isn't a huge problem as I had a 1984 Lincoln that was kind of the same way. You may also want to adjust your mixture of antifreeze and water to allow it to run a little hotter.

the oem thermostat is a 192 degreze change it if its sticking or has been removed. at some point someone may have installed a lower range thermostat (180 degreze)
