Sounds like at higher speeds it is unable to get hot air out of the engine compartment fast enough. You could try a chin spoiler under the bottom of the radiator/core support like modern cars have(usually rubber), this creates a low pressure area behind the spoiler helping to draw the hot air that has come through the radiator out the bottom of the compartment.

Are you running a vacuum advance on the distributor?? Vacuum advance creates cooler running at cruise speeds.
