I used to have a 1996 Volvo 850SE where the thermostat failed in the closed position. exactly the same problem: hot temperature, cold radiator.

Amazingly, convection cooling through the engine block was sufficient to prevent any catastrophic problems until it was fixed (it ran for a week in an English spring before the temperature rose consistantly to be noticed).
