I've never heard of a "Tornado" before. It depends a lot on how good it sounds, as opposed to what it looks like. I wouldn't expect it to be worth more than a couple hunderd dollars at the most. If it sounds good to you, then you're probably better off keeping it.

the fender toronado is a fender brand guitar that was modeled after the jazzmaster/jaguar shaped body. they come with humbucking pick ups and they stopped producing them in 2007 I would say that this particular color makes the guitar particularly desirable. especially among surf and kurt cobain fans. this guitar is worth about 250$-350$

The only hollow body that was called Tornado was by Ovation in the 1960s. Not sure what pickups it had, but they had the name on the pickguard. Regardless, unless there is good demand for it still, don't expect more than a couple hundred bucks for it.

The name "tornado" has been applied to many guitars. If it has a serial number it may be possible to say who made it, eg. Samick. If it sounds good and plays well, probably about $250, possibly a lot more. Without being able to play it, hard to say more.
