Default old penncrest stereo amp to basic tube amp

I have an old penncrest tube amp I yanked out of a 1961 jcpenny stereo, it has a lot of tubes and a transformer on it as well as vol, bass and treble pots. I also got two twelve inch twelve watt oxford speakers. What I need is the simplest low wattage amp design out there to power the two speakers in a cabinet. Thanks for any input.

That's a little broad with not much to go on! What penncrest, what's your level of expertise, what do you consider low wattage, what are the speaker impedances, et cetera, et cetera. You'll need to provide some more info.
