Almost every Ferrari car was bodied by external coachbuilders, but a few coachworks was created inside Maranello factory.
The most famous of this cars is surely the first Ferrari ever built: the 1947 125S Spyder.
Its body was built under the direction of Giuseppe Peiretti, headmaster of the Auto Avio Costruzioni (original name of Ferrari factory) coachbuilding section.
Peiretti left Maranello in 1947, one month after the debut of his 125S.

Perhaps a stretch, but the body of this Ferrari 250 GTO was made in-house at Ferrari by Bizzarrini and his small team working on the project. This prototype was known as "Anastasa" and it is believed that it was built on chassis 2053GT.

Not "Anastasa", but "Anatra", the italian word for Duck

Are you sure? As I've only seen Anastasa, like in this letter from Giovanni Volpi:

I have to correct myself, the nickname was "Papera" (or "Papero") and not Anatra (the meaning is duck anyway, for the shape of the front).
I never heard about Anastasia, but it could be another name for it...

EDIT: Anastasia is another car, chassis 2053GT, bodied by Drogo in 1962. This one: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=555&p=56780&hilit=drogo#p56780

The chassis number of the "Papera" car from you post should be 0523 GT

Are you sure this is the Papera car as I am under the impression that it is the Anastasia (as said)? Do you have any pictures of the car you mean is the Anastasia prototype?

It also fit with it being the Anastasia prototype due to its ugly and unfinished look, particular at the rear.

I've posted the link to the Drogo section where you can find the Anastasia

But those pictures are from 1963 after it was re-bodied by Drogo. I'm familiar with the chassis itself and its history (until the 1964 crash at least), it was after all I that posted the pictures you linked to. I was thinking of how it looked like when it used as a prototype by Ferrari. I was under the impression that the pictures I posted was of 2053GT from that period as said, but it is of course possible that I'm wrong and I'm therefore curious of what you are saying it looked like. :)

I'm not really into the history of those Ferrari, so I just have collected some informations around on the web. I've found that the "Anastasia" was a normal SWB rebodied by Drogo, while "Papera" was a different car, previously a 250 GT Boano, used as a test mule by Ferrari. According to this document it cuold have become 3223 GT http://www.johnstarkeycars.com/wp-conte ... 50-GTO.pdf
