I believe the 71 vs 72 headlight extensions are different.

Also, the turn signal/parking lights are in the 72 grille while the 71's have them in the bumpers.

I'm sure you could make it work if you had to.

To add to what Mike said, the upper grille mount, aka tie bar is different. It's notched for the turn signals.

The radiator support itself differs in that it has 2 holes cut into it for the turn signal socket/ wires to pass through.

As Mike said, If you change the grill you need to change the headlight extensions. You anso have to deal with the different locations of the signal lights (bumper vs grill). It is all bolt on parts though without any heavy modifications. It is easier to change a 72 to a 71 than it is to change a 71 to a 72 for the reasons Thomas mentioned.
