66 ac compressor always on

The compressor in my 66 Malibu is always "on" or should I say engaged unless I disconnect the wires to it. This shouldn't be the case should it? I can move the selector switch to outside air and even over to heat and it says on.

Also, the fan switch, all the way to the bottom is off, then as you come up it's high, med, low. Is this correct?

Joe, Thanks for answering back, I agree with you and I like to hear about the outcome to a problem. Did you ever figure out why your compressor is on all the time? There is a switch located on the heater core housing under the dash that is actuated by the OUTLETS lever on the AC control panel. This switch supplies power to the AC compressor clutch. It sounds like this switch is ON all the time.
