Default adding output tubes etc to pre amp

I have an old cj PV2AR preamp. I wanted to make a st-70 type kit amp to go with it and give it to my daughter.
Knowing that as a student she wont have a lot of room for a while, I was wondering if you can use the pre amp as the front end section of a tube amp, and make my own "integrated " tube set up

Yes, it most certainly can be made to work, although it may not be practical. Just as with any "which amp should I build" question, you need to give us more details about what speakers you intend to drive and so on. Do you have a schematic for the preamp? Not all preamps have a lot of gain or current drive capability so this will likely be your limiting consideration.
The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. Bertrand Russell
