hi m8 it does sound as if the thermostat is stuck open not uncommon, but as you said the previous owner may have had the thermostat cut in half just leaving a seal and the ring of the stat. if this is the case you may find that the car has had an overheating problem in the past and this has been a tempory fix.

so good luck m8 and let us know the outcome alex
