"Failsafe" thermostat by Motorad is one. "Exclusive" to Canadian Tire (I've
got the catalog in front of me)...

"Failsafe thermorstats will never fail in the closed postition! When a
standard thermostat burns out it can lock shut and bloack coolant flow.
Failsafe always allows free-flow to protect engine from over-heat damage.

Cdn, obviously.

quick web search revealed...
