Is this the same car Det. Morse uses on the PBS series? I wish we could see the whole car, and not just the nose...

Also, this appears to have a registration ending in B (1964) or D ('66): DI Morse's was 248 RPA and somewhat older.

This Jaguar Mk 2 is almost certainly 1964- later ones had 'lighter' bumpers- much less hansom than the 'fluted' style shown here. The colour is maroon, and most probably the interior is light tan in colour. My father owned one in exactly these colours- a 3.4 liter, which was really the best of the three variants for all round performance and handling. As a 17 year old I drove it through Spain and remember long periods above 100mph in very hot conditions. The XJ engine was one of the finest anywhere at that time - though it was noted for using almost as much oil as petrol in hot climates! This was a superb car and beautifully finished, given the moderste cost- even the exhaust manifolds were thickly enameled. Today a 17 year old would never get insurance for driving such a car, but I was privilaged to do so. Occasionally I even drove to school in it- I had a very trusting father! If I remember rightly the 3.8 liter had a gold background to the circular radiator badge. There is just a 'hint' that that badge may be present on the car illustrated.
