Guys, I know I will catch grief from some, but.....here it goes.  Has anyone attempted to put a 71/72 stripe kit on a 74 Dodge Charger?  Thank you in advance.

Do you mean like this?
You are aware the doors are completely different, the lines don't match?

The 73-74 door is lower in height at the rear but otherwise is very similar to the 71-72 door. The dimension from the front of the door to the rear of the quarter panel is the same, and the vinyl is fairly flexible, so personally I think it can be done. Not sure it will be a perfect fit but would be close at least. It's worth a try.
Do it!

The stripe on 71 ( 72 ) flows between upper lines on doors. Above it initially, then below it. It changes on the area where the body lines cross over.

On 73/74 the body line is continuous, so the flow flip between body lines will happen without any smooth, just crossing the body line.

73/74 body lines are more sharpened

The curvature on quarter is diff and the vinyl mostly sure will absorv that BUT the smooth flow on door won't happen anymore.

I have agree with Nacho ... it will be on a body line. Here is 72 door (Black Car). Notice the body lines don't match as they do on my 73 (Red Car).

Was watching an episode of Mopar or No Car on Prime video and saw a shot of a 74 with 71 stripes, will see if I can do a screen grab.

I have seen a couple over the years done.

73/74 doors are lower on rear... quarter glass opening is lower. Of course door jams too... around an inch and a half. The difference begins around half of the door

never said it never has been done or it can't be done, but will find the stripe crossing over the body line

Hmmm never said you said it hadn't been done Smiley I was responding to the OP who asked if anyone had attempted it.
