Replacement of Brick w/ a gray glaze/morter spread on face of it

Has anyone seen brick of this nature anywhere?

My house was built in 1967 and recently had a woman drive her car into it damaging a corner of the house requiring structural repair and brick replacement.

I'd like to match this brick as close as possible but my general contractor appears to be stumped.

Thanks.

More images, the brick itself is orange-ish or a peach-ish.

#1, A mason should be addressing this issue, not a GC.
Taken these pictures to a local brick suppliers to have them take a look?
My guess is within 25 miles will be able to ID the type of brick.
Do not waste time checking HD or Lowes.
Someone may have painted over the old brick, that's why you can see the red brick color under the gray in some areas.

Thanks for the reply Joe.

Im just trying to find out if anyone has seen this kind of treatment over a brick before?

The GC has consulted a couple of local masons, sounds like they have not been able to match the brick. This was his staement:

"I called a couple other places about the brick color and all the masons around the area get their brick from the same brickyards. If they donít have it then it is no longer available. Jim took a brick to find a match and unfortunately wasnít able to do so."
