Was it built in Portugal and called Mini Moke Californian?

Very likely - Portuguese assembly started 1980. And there's a 70-75 Mini Clubman Estate in the background, though probably not an Italian plate....

The pictured Moke is an Australian built Californian most likely 1978-79. The canopy design and fuel tank filler are pre to mid 1979 and did not appear on the 1980+ models.

Portuguese production did not start until the 1990's.

moke wrote Portuguese production did not start until the 1990's.

wiki says "As Australian Moke production wound down, manufacturing was transferred to British Leyland's subsidiary in Portugal, which made 8,500 of the "Californian" Mokes in the Setúbal IMA plant between 1980 and 1984. In 1984, the production was transferred to the Vendas Novas plant. Initially these Mokes were identical to late model Australian Mokes; very soon, however, they were altered to use then-current British production Mini saloon components, including the standard-length Mini rear trailing arms and the 12" wheels with modern low-profile tyres, which the saloon had acquired during the Moke's absence from Europe. In 1990, British Leyland (by then called Rover Group) sold the "Moke" name to Cagiva — a motorcycle manufacturer in Bologna, Italy. Production continued in Portugal until 1993, when Cagiva transferred the tooling to their factory in Italy with the intention of restarting production in 1995 — which they never did."

Some other sources put Portugal start as slightly later - 1982 or 83.
