I own a 67 convert., are the front parking lights supposed to come on when the lights are on?
Mine only come on in the first position of the light switch, when the switch is pulled to the second position the front parking lights go out and the head lights come on..... is this correct?

Something's wrong.  The parking lights should stay on.

Nothing is wrong - parking lights "on" with the headlights didn't start until the 1968 model year; some guys with 67's later jumpered the terminals on the headlight switch so the parking lights would be "on" with the headlights.

Prior to 68 "Parking lights" in a legal sense were for parking. But in 68 the law now required better night visability so side marker lights were added and parking lights in essence became "driving lights".
