I had a set similar to this when I was younger (I am fairly sure this was before the year 2000), although:

  • The model was red, rather than yellow.

  • The model was more of a breakdown truck, rather than a cargo lorry.

  • The model used a cleveryly hidden 9V battery to power a winch and flashing lights.

  • There were no supporting "arms" coming out the side like in the model below.

Can anybody help me find what set it was?

I believe the set you're looking for is the F1 Hauler (item no. 6484-1):

    That's it! Although I do not remember the the battery box being the tool chest, I thought it was built into the model and hidden behind the panels. After reading the reviews I see the model is 6 studs wide and the battery box was 4, so it's certainly possible. I'll have to see if I can find the manual somehwere.

  • @tombull89: You're right about the battery box. The first image I found made it hard to tell what the width of the truck was. I'll update with a better picture.

    I found my copy of the manual and took a picture of stage 14 which shows the location of the battery box.
