I think the model number is M32

US design, not based on a later Israeli upgraded tank

Actually I think it's the M74 because if this was in Spanish service the M32 couldn't handle the patton tanks which was the backbone of the spanish army

and that's why the the M74 existed in the first place

I agree, this is an M74; the M32 didn't have the front dozer blade, the box structure below the jib is also only on the M74. The other ways to tell are the M32 has a horseshoe shaped turret whereas the M74's is kind of hexagonal.

about producer

Quote Over 1000 of the M74 ARV were produced during 1954-1955 by Bowen-McLaughlin-York (later BMY, acquired by United Defense). Other M74 ARVs were converted from M32B1 Tank Recovery Vehicles at Rock Island Arsenal until 1958.
