I have successfully used super glue for such a repair. If you do it surgically, it will be near invisible and, depending on the overall flexibilty and health of the remaining rubber, perform well. This does not make it a "whole" hood, rather a thoughtfully repaired one. But it is no longer a torn one. Some value regained, as far as I'm concerned.

Revealing the repair to a buyer keeps your conscience intact.
