So, which Fuji model (mirrorless/DSLR, medium format/crop etc) do you think is the best for use with vintage manual focus lenses and why?

Most designed-for-FF lenses can cover more than 36x24mm, and many can fully cover the GFX sensor. Me like big sensor.

Just the other day a thread popped up at the MF lens forum with a long list with lenses that works with the GFX in max resolution: http://forum.mflenses.com/list-of-mf-lenses-on-fuji-gfx-t83733.html

Why don't I have one?

1. Not very compatible with my Sony A-mount and E-mount lenses.

2. Expensive.

3. Not a fan of Fuji colors (but I'd live with them ).

I've seen quite many portraits taken with vintage FF lenses on a GFX and they do look really good since the DOF gets enhanced due to the crop factor. Jonas Rask uses Minolta SR-lenses, see here: https://jonasraskphotography.com/2017/08/16/minolta-x-fujifilm/
