The only thing I'm worried about is the long haul comfort. I like to pickup project tractors myself, and they are usually 800-1500 miles away. I usually see 2-3 tractors I could pickup cheap, but there is not enough room on the trailer. Some of the day cab trucks don't look too comfortable for the long haul. Which models would be the most comfortable & quiet to drive (if there is such a thing)

The S series (1700, 1900, 2500, 2600) Internationals wouldn't be too fun on a long trip. The newer 47 and 4900, along with the 8100, 92, 93, 94, and 9900 would be pretty good choices, but not a lot of single axles out there in the 9000s. A daycab version of just about anything out there with a factory sleeper would be OK. Freightliner Centuries, Columbias, FLDs, Pete 336, 378, 379, KW T300, T600, Mack's traditional small cabs, like the R models, even older ones, aren't all that tight of a fit behind the wheel. Don't count out the square-nosed Petes and Kenworths. The later ones turn a lot better than you would expect them to. Also the Internationals models that end in an "I", on the 9000 series trucks, which came around about 2000 I think, have a curved windshield instead of flat, and the dash won't hold anything that's not secured, but the climate control is a lot better in them, and the wheels cut a lot farther for better turning radius.
I'd avoid Cat motors, too. They like their fuel more than the Detroits, Cummins, and Mack/Volvo's. Especially the ACERTs, the bottom end will last forever, but the top end has a lot of problems, especially valve actuators. And they take special tools to even just lash the valves.

Oh, and I'd also suggest hub-piloted wheels over Daytons. They are a lot nicer to work with.
