for real?, that stinks...i couldn't even get $500 out of it?...

No, and one of the primary reasons is the buyer could only reasonably use it
for parts.  On V3R2, the software license does not travel with the machine
but is tied to the original customer.  If you have kept the machine in
frequent power cycles so that the system password has not expired, then a
buyer could make the machine work but would not have any support from IBM.
So at best you are looking at someone getting it to play with at home for
development instead of production work.

But a V3R2 box is not good for that either.  It would be like getting a
Windows 3.1 box to learn Windows programming.

So parts are the only reasonable thing to do with the box, and there just
isn't much demand for those parts either.
