He is aged 60 and originally from Belfast.
The man is being held for questioning about the murder of Paul McNally, 26, a Catholic who was shot dead by loyalists as he left a bookmaker's shop on Belfast's Crumlin Road in June 1976.
It is believed two gunmen opened fire on a group of men who were leaving the bookmaker's.
Mr McNally and another man sustained serious injuries.
Mr McNally, a plumber, died two days later in hospital. He was married and had a four-year-old daughter and a five-month-old son.
Detectives from the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) serious crime branch, assisted by officers from the Metropolitan Police Service, interviewed the man at a police station in London.
Police said the investigation was re-opened following the receipt of information and a number of preliminary inquiries.
In February, a man was arrested in Belfast and later released pending a report being sent to the Public Prosecution Service.
