Not easy to do with an MPi, in fact Id say it would be easier to drop in and test compared to trying to cobble together a test rig.

Get the reg no of the written off Mini and check the MoT history here  https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/

 

That will tell you if it is 20k or 120k.

And wouldnt tell you anything other than maybe cold oil pressure.
Could easily do a compression test and leakdown test though. Although they might not tell anything with gummed up rings from sitting that long.

Does the UK mot keep mileage records since day 1? Very little cars only do 20k in 20 years

It may not tell you it's only done 20K but if it's done more you'll definitely see it.
