[Boatanchors] Using a Pre-Amp with a Gonset G-66B?

When I get my Gonset G-66B working well - recapped,
aligned, good tubes, etc ... would a pre-amp, e.g.
Ameco PCL-P (2 x 6DS4 nuvistors cascoded) add anything
other than amplified atmospheric noise?

I'm guessing that the G-66B was designed to anticipate
a poor quality mobile antenna and therefore has lots of
gain built in. True?
