my first guess at that would be you have a air bubble it the master cylinder. have you left something out like a repair you just performed or something ?
sound like air anyhow or a bad master cylinder.
what to try is this fill up the brake reservoir and open both rear bleeders
walk away for a few hours or put a pan to catch fluid and go to bed
this should start a gravity bleed on the brakes brake, fluid level should be lower in the morning if not empty lol.
have someone pump the brakes hold the pedal down on the last pump and while they hold the pedal down crack the bleeder, ( he must keep pedal on the floor till you tighten the bleeder back up
then he can let up on the pedal and y'all do this again and again till while he hold the pedal down and you open the bleeder, you have no momre air coming out. good luck

the stratus is know for clasped rear brake hoses .This stops the flow off brake fluid. try opening the brake lines at the master cylinder that go to the rear.pump up brakes first! if you got fluid than check the brake line if this is rear disc brakes on the line at the rear will be a built in proportioning valve.if drum loosen rubber hose line before the rubber part to see if you have fluid. If you do replace the brake hose! On you 74 challenger by the way i love dodge! any way on the valve there is a small button on the front of the proportioning valve that pops out it needs to be tap in lightly. also hit the brake peddel kind of hard a couple off times if that doesn't work. thanks for your question
p.s that hex bar on the is a junction not a proportioning valve .
