William Archibald "Archie" Scott Brown (May 13, 1927 - May 19, 1958) was a British racing driver from Scotland.

He was known for being disabled in his right arm and both legs from birth due to German Measles, but was able to lead a normal life after several operations. He took part in the 1956 British Grand Prix in a Connaught, however retiring after 16 laps due to transmission problems.

He was killed in a sports car race at Spa-Francochamps on May 19, 1958.
