1984 Volvo 240

Engine Cooling problem
1984 Volvo 240 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 180000 miles

I have a problem with my car overheating. It is a 1984 Volvo 240 Turbo and I can only go about 50 miles per hour tops and anything after that the car will start to overheat. Also, on my temperature guage, it will go almost to the red driving around town and as soon as it gets to the red it will go about halfway down and be fine. Does anyone know whats wrong?
