running without oil thermostat

In my 39 Studebaker project we are running into fitment issues with the 617 and the stude body. I have a remote oil filter kit but don't see how it can be used with an oil thermostat. Will running with the cooler in the loop all the time cause problems with the oil being too cool?

The car will most likely not be driven much in the winter.
