Wasn't the Lincoln flat head prone to overheating or am I confusing it with another Ford flathead?

I seem to recall reading somewhere that an engine Edsel used or wanted to use in the Zephyr was problematic because of overheating. The limited grill area and low airflow styling had wanted would make the situation worse. I think the article said engineering wanted some changes in the engine but Henry refused the tooling cost so they revised the grill from original plans making the air intake area larger but engineering still felt it was only a marginal improvement.
