Side question, is there a difference in radiator cap if you have a car with or without A/C?
And which cap do I need since my car doesn't have an A/C anymore?

Love the green color combination. As you can see I am kind of partial to green cars myself. I no longer own the '58 Edsel as it lived up to it's reputation of being a mechanical nightmare. Strictly sticking to Cadillacs from now on!

What a great story to go along with that beautiful car!  That color of your car is very striking, what do they call that color?

No bubbles during the warming period could tell there is no head gasket compression leak towards cooling chamber.
The foamy part makes me scratch my head...  tiny foamy bubbles instead of 'boiling' type of bubbles  ???
The dash thermometer peaking could mean sticky thermostat.  I would remove the thermostat and plug the bypass coolant path just to compare behaviors.  If I remember well, takes a ball smaller than a golf ball to block the bypass. If I remember well, the bypass passage is under the thermostat, joining the block outlet to the block inlet.  Please inspect to confirm.
Then, check if without installing the radiator cap, idling until hot...  Do bubbles begin foam tiny and later become boiling size ?

Is the exhaust white steamy ?  Does coolant level gets lower ?

Just for peace of mind, re-tighten water pump hose inlet clamps.  And driving with no thermostat and bypass blocked is not harmful at all.

Was a chemical flush used ?

Very cool. I had similar luck when researching the history of my car. My dealer was a small dealership with only one salesman. Deductive reasoning makes him the salesman for my car  ;D

 I thought I might share an interesting discovery I found out about my car. I have owned my Cadillac for 7 years now and during that time I have spent a great deal of effort in learning everything I can about its history. I was very lucky to have the original owners identification card which has been a great help in learning a lot about it. In addition to that the second page of owners manual had an interesting signature (Ed Snyder) I was curious as to who this was. I knew it wasn't the original owner so I thought maybe the salesmen? With that in mind I started searching the newspaper archives for an Ed Snyder in connection with the dealership my car came from. What I found was beyond my greatest expectations. I found an article from august of 1956 Just a few months before my car was to be sold new introducing a new Cadillac salesmen named Ed Snyder. I think it's a pretty safe bet that this was the original salesmen that sold my Cadillac 61 years ago how cool is that!  :)

You have a Coupe Deville according to the title.  I can't wait to see the pictures.  I love the 60 model year.
