GULFSTREAM II CONTRACTOR'S MODEL. Model in fiberglass and metal, with wooden base, 650 mm wingspan, 28-1/2 inches in length, 18-1/4 inches high without base. Custom wooden box. Provenance: Manufactured by a major aerospace model shop. The Grumman Gulfstream II executive jet was a development of Grumman's successful Gulfstream I design, but with the adoption of two Rolls-Royce Spey turbofan engines instead of the Gulfstream I's turboprop engines. This was in response to competition from Lockheed, Dassault, North American and Hawker Siddeley in the business jet market. A modified Gulfstream II with controls modified to mirror those of a space shuttle were used by NASA as trainers during the shuttle program. Grumman sold off its Gulfstream business in 1974 to American Jet Industries. Today it is a subsidiary of General Dynamics.
