Default 1970 1200D overheats when idleing

1970 1200D 4x4, 392, 3spd auto

The truck runs and drives great, though presently it's role is limited to being my yard truck until I can afford to do something more exciting with it. So I don't generally drive it for more than an hour or two at a time.

The issue I'm having is the truck seems to overheat at idle, when the truck is in gear running down the road the temp guage heads right back to a more comfortable position. When stopped it starts to climb back up again.

I don't see any coolant leaking from the overflow or the radiator itself and when I checked they are always where I left them nice and full.
