First year for Impala SS?

What was the very first model year for the Impala SS trim (with an appropriate under the hood upgrade)?

From what I've researched it was 1961, is that true, or was there something earlier?

Thanks.

According the the following web site 1961 mid year is the first time the Impala SS was introduced. This page seems to have the complete history through the 2001 model year.

Thanks for the site link, looks like some good to know info, even if it is a few years out of date.
