Question about 1988 Lincoln Town Car
It sound's like one of two thing's, first open the glove compartment look behind to the left you will see a clear vacuum line going to a goldish in color accuator remove it once the vehicle is at normal operating temp. if you get heat then you have a problem with the vacuum switch, just plug the vacuum hose, you will have to reconnect it in the summer to get the AC working. The other problem could be the heater control valve, located under the hood inline on the hoses going to the heater core, upper passenger side of the fire wall.

Are both hoses to the core hot, if not flush the core with a garden hose. Both problems could be a bad thermostat, but you said you replaced it, so the gauge problem might be a temp sensor.

Try a new vacum switch that goes from the gold tube under glove box
