Thanks for the additional Help!No need for a key to open a door, windows are down, but it looks like a tight fit .
With a good light look thru the grill...the 1.1 radiator mounts about 4 inches behind the radiator support,
the 1.9 radiator mounts close against that panel.
If you can get behind the Opel, and are familiar with the 1.9 GT, you will notice that the entire rear
drive train is noticeably smaller IF this GT is a 1.1....There is probably a one in a thousand chance
that it is a 1.1 but there is that possibility.
IF it is a 1100 be aware that to change to a 1900 (or bigger) engine requires a transmission, and
all running gear, suspension front and rear, brakes, etc. Everything I mention is smaller scale.
The body (as far as I know) is the same except for some minor brackets for throttle linkage, etc..
....As I was writing this someone supplied an easier clue.

Thanks that helped me out a lot.I wish I would have taken better pics and more pics.The 1.9 engine would have a "1900" plate on the rear panel; the 1.1 engine would have no plate. The 1.1 model would have a VIN beginning with "93", the 1.9 would begin "94".
It's hard to do a realistic appraisal until you get a chance to thoroughly inspect the car. If you can drag it out of the barn and do a stem to stern inspection (take lots of photos) you will get some opinions here as to value. Body integrity is huge for these cars, so pay particular attention to any rust. As a parts car, it might be worth <$1000. A good restoration candidate (solid body, unlocked engine, good glass, etc.) that has been sitting in dry storage could be worth several times that. Condition is key.Do you have any idea how much they are worth in the condition they are in? I one time saw a 1969 Opel Gt automatic for sale for $5,500 And it was in about the same condition as the purple one. Do you think this one is worth that much?
