The parking light should not be on. There are a few possible causes. * Bad ground and powers is going thru parking lamps to get to ground. Check the grounding of the headlight. * a short in the headlight/parking light wiring (like the wires are touching) not likely but what happens when you turn on the parking lamps....do the headlights come on very dim? * bad/defective headlight switch.

They should NOT be on with the headlights! Vehicles made before the 1968 model year were designed so that when you switch on the headlights the parking lights (front) switch off. I once had the same argument at the inspection station with a 1966 Cadillac that I owned at the time. HTH. -Jim
