US-based Grumman, later Gulfstream, began designing the G-159, later known as the Gulfstream I, in 1956; an executive transport based on a turbine powered variant of the naval utility transport TF-1 Trader. The first flight of the prototype took place on 14 August, 1958, FAA type certification was awarded in May 1959 and deliveries commenced in June.

The Gulfstream I is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a semi-monocoque aluminium alloy fuselage structure. It is powered by two 1,990 hp RollsRoyce Dart Mk.5298X or 8E turboprops with Rotol four bladed constant speed propellers. The Gulfstream I has a retractable tricycle landing gear, with twin wheels on the two main units and the nose gear. As a corporate transport it carries between 10 and 14 passengers.

Production of the standard fuselage I ceased in February 1969 in favour of the jet powered Gulfstream II.

The basic fuselage cross section carries through to the Gulfstream IV and V.
